Thread: The 2017 Houston Mock Trial of Oswald

  1. Default The 2017 Houston Mock Trial of Oswald

    This was written by one of the two defense lawyers for our side.

    Interesting overview of the past legal proceedings. Had no idea there were so many. The one at Yale looked interesting. Surprised they did that well that early.

    Of course there is no information on the A and E mock trial where LHO was found NG.

    I hope the one in 2017 proves the truth. Both defense lawyers are terrific. And know this case, unlike most law students.

    We'll never know if Oswald would have taken the stand and testified, which makes these mock trials very speculative.

    Dawn:

    Which one are you talking about on A and E?

    Did Larry miss that one?

    Was it broadcast?

    Jim,

    He mentions it, but apparently there's no information.

    The lawyers could strike a total of five jurors: three for the prosecution and two for the defense during voir dire. At the conclusion of the trial, the jury deliberated for 2 ½ hours, but after several ballots was unable to reach a verdict. Seven of the jurors voted to convict Oswald while five favored acquittal. The five jurors that were removed during voir dire constituted a surrogate or shadow jury. They sat through the trial and saw the same evidence as the jury. This group of dismissed jurors voted 3 to 2 for acquittal.Earlier that year, the jury in a mock trial by the Arts & Entertainment network, found Oswald innocent. No information was available about this proceeding.

    Isn't that interesting.

    And there is no extant record of it.
