    I agree. I heard a news teaser about possibly putting homeless people on the jury bc they might be the only ones with no idea about the case.

    I mean, what do they do in cases like this? Seriously, who has been living under a rock and hasn't heard a hundred details about this case? How many people haven't seen the pictures of her partying it up while her daughter is missing and again partying while in jail?

    Of course partying pictures don't mean she did it. She might be a cold callous person but I'd like to see actual evidence.

    There is a lot of evidence to see. She's sooo guilty.

    Even with a life sentence there would most definitely be an automatic appeal. In fact I've seen appeals filed in almost every felony conviction be it violent or non-violent. Granted even if convicted the jury then has to decide on life or death but when it comes to murderers, as a taxpayer I wouldn't think twice about wanting the death sentence for someone who murders a child.

    This is true. Private attorney's most always file appeals on felony convictions, violent or not, and if the defendant has the public defender it is automatic and at the taxpayer's expense. I have to prepare the record on appeal for all felony convictions, and there are many.

    I agree the circumstantial evidence is pretty overwhelming.

    Even in the absence of solid forensic evidence, I think her behavior after the fact will be hard for the defense to overcome. Kinda like in Scott Peterson's case. No real forensic evidence there either.

    Question...

    Does anyone know how much people will be on jury? Is it 9 or 12? And for a guilty verdict, do all of them have to say guilty or only a majority?

    News is saying 20 jurors are needed. 12 regular, the rest alternates.

    Ugh. This had better not have the same outcome.

    Thanks. So does anyone know what's considered a quilty verdict? Do at least 7 people out of the 12 have to say guilty for this bitch to get chained up? In other countries, I think it takes more than 7 people so just wondering what the united states is like.

    don't they all have to agree?

    In criminal trials in the US, all 12 jurors have to vote guilty for a conviction. In civil trials (lawsuits), a majority suffices.

    So wait, all it takes is one person to not agree and it's a hung jury=mistrial? This really sucks, I didn't realize all criminal trials were like that...

    Served on a jury once where that happened, drug dealer most likely guilty but we had to let him go because there wasn't enough evidence of his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

    They better bring some damn convincing evidence against this bitch.
