Jury hangs on main charge in Reno County

Here is a Hutchinson News article reporting that a jury hung on four drug charges, including possession with intent to sell within 1000 feet of a school, only convicting of one count of obstruction. It was State v. McCoy, a Reno County case. Janis Knox, from the public defender office was the defense attorney. Apparently, this trial was moved up several weeks with only a day's notice to the defense (due to proseuctor's speedy trial concerns). So, it is even a more remarkable result!

Is sex the only thing in a marriage? Is it the only thing in a love between a man and a woman? The fact that Sam Sheppard strayed is no proof that he did not love his wife, his child and his home. Sam Sheppard succumbed to sex, the strongest lure in the human body, as you and I know. I, too, would lie under oath if I were asked to confess to some private sin intended only for the ears of the confessor. We are approaching the Christmas season, when God came down to earth to set man free and establish on earth the principle of freedom. Unless we American lawyers and we American jurors do our part in maintaining that freedom in this case, we have failed in our duties."
