And we’re not talking about people who know someone who knows someone at at Penn State. Three of them are currently employed by the university. One is a retired faculty member. One is a current student. One holds undergrad and graduate degrees from PSU and one has been a football season ticket holder for 30+ years. And jurer number 12 served on some committee with disgraced former university president Graham Spanier, who resigned because of the Sandusky situation.
I don’t know whether these jurors are pro Sandusky or not, but how could they have been chosen as impartial? Do you suppose this is good for the prosecution, the defense, or none of the above? In an area dominated by Penn State, how did this trial not get moved?
