Casey Anthony: Jury Location Selected
If you live in or near Clearwater, Florida…you might end up on the Casey Anthony jury.
From what I was hearing on the news this morning, this is a typically older, more conservative community so it will be interesting to see the demographics that make up the jury that is inevitably selected.
From the Associated Press:
Jury selection for the trial of Casey Anthony, who’s accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter, will take place in the Tampa area.
Judicial officials in Orlando didn’t make the announcement until early Monday because of intense media interest in the trial of 25-year-old Anthony, who’s accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, in 2008. Jury selection was expected to begin Monday morning in Pinellas County.
Once the panel is chosen, jurors will be transported to Orlando, where they will stay in a hotel for the duration of the trial, which is expected to take about two months.
About 600 media credentials were requested from the court and an empty lot in front of Orlando’s courthouse was renamed “Casey Town” after it was designated the spot for TV trucks and reporters to congregate once the trial begins. The number of journalists assigned to Anthony’s trial may even dwarf the number assigned to O.J. Simpson’s trial 16 years ago, said the judge presiding over it.
