My (Almost) Mob Jury Experience
I just read in Newsday about the mixed jury verdict last week in the trial of Christopher Colombo and other reputed mobsters.
I have a personal interest in that case, as I was in the federal court jury pool when the Colombo jury was empaneled.
Didn't even get to be questioned. I mentioned "Born to Steal" in the jury questionnaire (even though there was no question "Have you ever written a book about the Mob?") and I was excused.
Drat. Would have been an interesting, if time-consuming, experience.
