Episode 78: Inside The Jury Room View Podcast Episode

When you are a criminal defense attorney and you have always wanted to sit on a jury but are never selected because of what you do, you get excited when you find out a family member got to sit on a jury. Being a criminal defense attorney and having had a father who was law enforcement you also cannot wait to hear about what happens with a jury while a case is going on and what they really do during jury deliberations. In this episode we welcome Ann’s sister Mary Kate Thayer (also known as MK) and her dog Rooney (named after one of the Steelers owners) on to the show to tell us about her recent experience serving on a criminal jury in Virginia.


If you are listening to this podcast, thank you!  We sincerely hope you are listening to this podcast for its entertainment value and not with the intention of acquiring legal advice for any individual case or situation.  I mean, come on! You wouldn’t take advice from someone you have never met or spoken to directly, right?   If you were bleeding profusely, you wouldn’t listen to a podcast in hopes of a bandage somehow materializing over the internet and onto your 3D printer.  Seeking actual legal advice can be just as important as a tourniquet.  The hosts of this podcast are in no way intending to create an attorney-client relationship with any listener.  Sorry.  We are sure you all are great people but we cannot stress enough how little we know of you and your case and rather than risk an awkward moment, let us just remember we have never met.  Nothing on this platform be taken as legal advice for any individual case or situation!  We are just a group of friends with differing opinions and viewpoints which we will try to explore through discussions of current events, law changes, and whatever else floats our fancy.
