BART Shooting Jurors Answer 121 Questions

June 02, 2010  | 

Potential jurors who may be among the 12 to consider the fate of former BART transit officer Johannes Mehserle have been given a 15-page questionnaire with 121 questions on a broad range of topics.

According to SFGate.com:

The form asks about basics such as job status and education; practical questions about whether jurors already know about the case; legal questions about a defendant's constitutional rights; and questions regarding experience -- whether jurors are familiar with guns and Tasers and whether they have ever been arrested or victimized in a crime.

Read the full story.

Read the juror questionnaire, which has been posted on the Los Angeles Superior Court website.
