 Author Warns of Peril in Sequestered Zimmerman Jury

 Author and Nationally Syndicated Columnist Earl Ofari Hutchinson whose new book,  America on Trial: The Slaying of Trayvon Martin 

  examines the issues of race and the criminal justice system in the Martin case. Hutchinson contends that sequestration in the Zimmerman trial could cause more problems than it solves. Hutchinson notes that informal surveys of the impact of jury sequestration on trial outcomes shows that isolating a jury can increase juror dropouts. Those with family responsibilities can’t stomach more than a few nights away from home, and they often end up leaving mid case due to “personal circumstances.”

Hutchinson also notes that these juror departures likely increase the likelihood of a mistrial. That’s the result of the eagerness of jurors to return home and that could compel them to deliberate hastily.

Hutchinson adds that jury sequestration is used in few cases and that includes high profile cases. The reason for this is precisely because of the risk of a costly, time consuming, and legally frustrating mistrial with sequestered juries. That’s certainly a major danger, Hutchinson, insists, with a jury sequestered possibly for weeks in the Zimmerman trial.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson is an author and political analyst. His new ebook is America on Trial: The Slaying of Trayvon Martin (Amazon). He is an associate editor of New America Media. He is a weekly co-host of the Al Sharpton Show on American Urban Radio Network. He is the host of the weekly Hutchinson Report on KTYM 1460 AM Radio Los Angeles and KPFK-Radio and the Pacifica Network.
