It’s not that often that a JURY protests a legal decision, but the jurors in the Michael George trial seem to want his head on a pike, as they protested with actual signs and everything.
It’s extremely rare for a judge to order a new trial after a jury has reached a verdict. The prosecution plans to file an appeal with the state Court of Appeals within the next two weeks.
“I think it’s a travesty,” said jury foreman Garry Kuzinskoski, a 45-year-old sales engineer.
“We went through every piece of evidence,” added juror Madette Bui, 39, a registered nurse. “Everybody agreed on first-degree murder. We knew exactly why we were deciding it.”
