Two Jackson Jurors Regret Acquittal

1 hour, 41 minutes ago

Two of the jurors who voted to acquit singer Michael Jackson of child molestation and other charges say they regret their decisions.

Jurors Ray Hultman and Eleanor Cook, who both have pending book deals, planned to appear Monday night on the new MSNBC show "Rita Cosby: Live and Direct."

In a preview shown Monday on NBC's "Today," Cosby asked Cook if the other jurors will be angry with her.

"They can be as angry as they want to. They ought to be ashamed. They're the ones that let a pedophile go," responded Cook, 79.


Explaining the turnaround by Cook and Hultman, Larry Garrison, who is working with both on their separate books and a combined television movie, said all the jurors "had an agreement (to be united) and then basically when they went on 'Larry King Live,' both Eleanor and Ray couldn't tolerate what was going on anymore. They said, 'Enough is enough.'"



Well, glad to see the jury system working... :eyes:

This is nuts. As a juror, you are compelled to vote your conscience. In the end, if the jury can't come to a decision, we do have a hung jury option and the chance to try the case again.

Of course, we do have a book and movie deal, so nad press is better than no press...
