Jury returns NG in Harford County DUI

Gary S Bernstein

Interesting jury trial in Harford County.  Obviously the verdict was very satisfying and correct.  Jury selection was very fascinating.  There were 6 jurors who believed that it was unlawful to have any alcohol and drive.  Some were in the 12-step program.  When the judge told them that is not the law a few felt that they could not put their personal feelings aside and follow the law.  Their honesty was remarkable, as was their resolve against drinking and driving.  Needless to say even those who said they would follow the law were not seated on the jury.
