Juror Says He Knew One of Tuesday's Witnesses
Prior to the trial beginning today, a juror came forward to inform the judge and the attorneys that he knew witness Judi Rhodes-Engels. He said he hadn't realized that he knew her during jury selection.
The juror said his and Rhodes-Engels' daughters attend the same school, and he has seen her at school functions. The juror said their conversation has not gone beyond a "hello."
The attorneys raised no objections to the juror continuing in the case.
