Jury Selection Begins
Judge Steven Ebert told potential jurors to expect long days ahead during the trial of former Assembly Speaker Scott Jensen.
"The trial was originally scheduled for three weeks," Ebert said. "I don't know whether this trial will go the full three weeks, but it could."
Ebert said the trial will proceed each day at 8:30 a.m. and will usually wrap up around 5-5:30 p.m.
The attorneys were introduced, and Jensen attorney Stephen Meyer made a gesture as he introduced his client. "It is my privilege to introduce my client Scott Jensen," he said.
Jensen, dressed in a gray suit, light blue shirt and dark blue tie, looked alert and eager as instructions and the charges were read to the jury pool.
