Jim Hoeft, of Bearing Drift, and I will be appearing on WVEC’s 5:30pm newscast today to offer our thoughts on the trial of former governor Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen. We will be appearing once or twice a week as the trial, which started this morning, progresses. The trial is expected to last five to six weeks.
The first step in the trial is to select a jury. Here is an excellent review of the jury pool as well as what the prosecution and defense are looking for in potential jurors.
Don’t forget to tune in tonight at 5:30. Those of you outside of WVEC’s viewing area can watch the live stream on the site.
