James Fields got 400 years. I don’t have high hopes that justice exists in this country at all.
The jury was not sequestered.Well to appeal they'd have to appeal to the court of appeals and then if they affirm they can then appeal to the supreme court but they get to choose which cases they hear. I don't see how that statement could constitute jury tampering as long as the jury is sequestered properly. If convicted of manslaughter or anything else he is likely to appeal, but the facts are established by the district court so they would have to appeal based upon the district court erring on one or more of their legal conclusions in conviction. Im just a 1L though so I'm not too knoweldgeable on it and haven't really been following the case.
A lot of you guys predicted guilty on at least one count (if not more). With this outcome, do you guys still think there will be rioting or protests in the streets tonight? The odds of that likely decreased I'm thinking. Guess you never know.
