I didn't intend to take a break from the forum for a few months, but I was selected for a jury pool in a murder case back in March. We were instructed by the judge to avoid any news regarding the case and especially avoiding google searches and internet surfing. I took that to heart and basicaly just avoided most all internet use. Got a lot done and hopefully will result in modifying how much time I spend on the web in the future.
Anyway, I eventually had to ask to be excused from the selection process due to medical procedures that came up. I'm sure it would have been a once in a lifetime opertunity to see the process, but the case was horribly heinous and gut wrenchingly sad. The defendant was truly a monster from the depths of hell. Raped, killed and threw away a beautiful nine year old girl like a piece of garbage...
Didn't take long for the jury to decide his fate.
