The jury in a Pinellas County Fla murder case will be sequestered for the entire murder trial of a woman who is accused of killing her 2 year old daughter. The trial is expected to last at least three months. They will be transported a hundred miles under armed guard and locked in a hotel without being able to watch News programs or read newspapers for the entire duration. Have we gone overboard in protecting the rights of the accused? Aside from the expense to the county in a downturn economy the jurors will be away from their jobs and their families for the entire time under guard just as if they were convicted of a crime. No wonder people don't register to vote anymore, that's where they get the jury selection.
