    That's because people in Alaska are crazy.

    I think its in DC, not Alaska.

    And...yeah this shit is weird. Its going to be interesting if the trial is delayed until after election day.

    So what do you think, counselor? Juror number 9 intentionally trying to get a mistrial for the defense?

    Ya cause a mistrial will end it right? They will just refile and start again if that happens. But then you already knew that before you said the above.

    Of course, they'll refile. I don't think I said they wouldn't. However, the prosecution is less likely to win if it's a re-trial. It's not impossible, but statistically, I don't believe the conviction rate is as good. Plus, he wouldn't have a conviction before the election.

    Umm, if the choices are to be convicted or a mistrial, I'm pretty sure which one Stevens and the Defense would choose....

    But my guess is they just happened to get someone crazy on the jury.
