FIN

Kinda happy, finishing up a few things. New portfolio is almost done, and this week i finished my month long jury duty term. They selected me as a juror on a murder trial, even though it's over for me i'm not sure if or how much i'm allowed to say. I will say that it ended as a mistrial, not sure what that even means, legal jargon.

Not speaking of the case but just law in general... a mistrial from what i understand means the person is set free and the state can retry charges. What i'd like to know is if the person on trial is released or held in jail until whatever case is retried again. It's odd to think that criminals could be set free based on a mistake during trials, at the same time that could lead to crowded jails. Trials could take weeks or months to get back to court, do they hold possibly innocent people in jail for all that time? That's also unfair...
