Sparks, I don't believe Tantillo would allow a relative to be chosen. They'd be biased.

They interview them at the 2nd screening on the witness stand. If memory serves me correctly, they ask, under oath, if there is any reason they should not be on the jury....something to that effect and if a relative in fact did say no, they would be committing perjury. Being a relative would be perceived as being biased. I'm not a lawyer, so don't quote me on any of that, but that's how I believe they would find out.

no, you can't be a relative

actually you're not supposed to even be familiar with/or close friends of the defendant, their lawyer, or the DA.

It's a pretty strict screening process. I wouldn't imagine a relative could get through it without perjuring themselves.

Preponderance of the evidence was enough to indict Leo. I have no doubts that the trial jury will find him guilty. Your giving Larson far too much credit as a ring leader. From the guilty deputies on up, they all have a mind of their own and yet they did wrong. My concern isn't with the verdict or what sort of time Leo may or may not serve. I'm hoping that this trial will loosen up the judicial grip on those GJ Report that have been sealed for far too long.

My thinking is Larson was the ringleader and kept Leo in the dark. Poor judgement, poor leadership, and no dedication, are Leo's crimes and that is just an opinion.

Even if the find him guilty, he will walk- he will appeal that takes about 6-9 months then if he loses that he will appeal again, more time to wait and I have heard his health is not good - so he will never to any jail time, so why waste the money?
All of the trials have been found gulity already and how many of them are still in jail? what is the total amount of time they have done compared to the price tag on all this?

It don't look good for Leo, they are setting this up so he looks like a jerk and pervert. Leo is the kind of guy, just looking at him, you don't like him. I personally have never met him. But from earlier news footage he came across poorly. I still say save the county some big bucks and let him plead to misdemeaner. Huge fine and let him and his family put this Larson induced scandal behind them. Don't we have better things to do with our monies than waste it on this?

I liked the part where Leo was never told about Larson's background check, and the JERK who testified said he "thought he just knew".
