KDKA.com has an incredible tape from jurors and also with Wecht himself talking. He hits it on the money when he notes how powerful prosecutors can be. The very fact that citizens who served as jurors and heard the evidence in this case are speaking out, that Wecht is telling how he has been destroyed by enormous legal fees and the emotional strain placed upon him, makes one wonder where is the oversight of main justice and have there been any discussions of a deferred prosecution. (see here)
It is equally bothersome to hear the prosecution claiming they need outsider jurors for the retrial (see here). It sounds just like the defense argument in a much higher profile case - that is, Jeffrey Skilling's claim when being tried before a Houston jury.
