Mock Trial Juries Acquitted Rudolph
No, this ain't Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer we're talking about here! Rudolph the Rightwing Terrorist! It is scary how some people think that if your line of work or beliefs don't agree with theirs, you deserve to die.

Story is here

1. A reading of the article
The author of the book says this. The DA says she is mistaken in her interpretation.

-- Serial bomber Eric Rudolph, who pleaded guilty to avoid a possible death sentence, may have had a better chance than he realized to beat the rap, according to a new book by one of his victims.

The account by Emily Lyons says federal prosecutors staged four mock trials as they prepared for his trial in the bombing of a Birmingham abortion clinic -- and Rudolph was acquitted in three of them.

Lyons says in the book she co-authored, "Life's Been a Blast," that the mock juries failed to convict Rudolph because someone felt the victims "got what they deserved because they worked at an abortion clinic."


U.S. Attorney Alice Martin confirmed Tuesday that at least one mock trial was held but said Lyons "is mistaken in her understanding of the results."
