In a victory for prosecutors and the family of Oscar Grant, a judge has sent the murder trial of ex-BART cop Johannes Mehserle to downtown Los Angeles, according to the Trib and the Chron. Mehserle’s defense team had wanted the case moved to conservative San Diego County, where the jury pool likely would have been more sympathetic to police officers.
I am quite relieved by this decision, even if it does appear it was made for monetary and not fairness reasons.
And I will continue to follow this story and bring you updates. :)
