Episode 5: Look Who’s Coming to Jury Duty & Trial Jams 2017

In the fifth episode of Aider & Abettor, Avi and Sajid discuss the challenge of getting a representative jury and one proposal (California Senate Bill 576) to collect more data about the jury selection process.

In the Deep Dive, they talk about the music that gets them going during trial. The discussion is broken up into five stages: setting the ground rules, jury selection, opening statement, cross examination, and closing argument.

In the “Things” segment, Avi recounts a confrontation with a bathroom line-cutter. Sajid shares his thoughts about public reactions to the sentence in a South Carolina hate crime case and a report on “Pay-to-Stay” jails. Sajid blogged about these subjects at thesajidakhan.tumblr.com/
