Interesting article following up on acquittal from a while ago

Here is a Wichita Eagle article relating the "aftermath" of a not guilty verdict obtained in a high profile Wichita murder prosecution twenty-five years ago by then-young-public defender Richard Ney.

I had posted sentiments on Facebook after the Zimmerman verdict exhorting people who might have been disappointed or even angry with the result of the Zimmerman trial to be cautious as to where to place their disappointment or anger.  I certainly cannot fault a juror or jury that simply follows the law and instructions given to it.  In fact, I am proud and amazed to live in a country that trust its jurors to make these hard decisions.  It's probably part of why I work so hard to protect the Right to a Jury Trial.
