Guilty or not?!?!

Well week one was interesting...

After finally being chosen for Jury service on Tuesday I had a 4 day ABH case to contemplate.  Whilst I thought the guy was clearly guilty, my fellow jurors thought that he had acted in self defence so a "not guilty" verdict had to be returned.  And by me as I'd somehow been elected foreman!

Week 2 saw me sitting on a theft case, but after a day of hearing evidence, the judge directed us to find him "not guilty" too as he felt that the police had not investigated certain allegations thoroughly..

It was an interesting two weeks and I'd be happy to sit again.
