Jury duty at last


Jury duty, at last, is over. And I’m now free to talk about it.

I sat on a jury in DC Superior Court.

The defendant was charged with one count of distributing PCP and one count of possession with intent to distribute. The alleged crime took place in an area in Southeast Washington which the prosecution and the defense called an open air drug market.

We heard three full days of testimony. And we deliberated for a bit more than half a day.

We convicted the defendant on count one and acquitted him on count two.
