Business Crime Jury Trial Query.

True story.

Several years ago I was closing in a federal jury criminal trial (fraud and arson) in Pittsburgh. Halfway through there female jurors began softly crying.

Only these three women jurors in the first row out of the 12 and the 2 alternates were crying.

I had for a clIent a particularly sympathetic and grandmotherly if loopy hillbilly crime boss/Ma Barker-type defendant (mother of the other three defendants) about 70 who was facing jail time.

Was it my great closing or just 3 chicks who like many other women were all completely nuts?
