In this audio interview after the penalty retrial, 14 minutes 20 seconds in, a juror concludes that Jodi lied on the stand.
According to the juror, Jodi testified that when she was looking for a house with Darryl Brewer, they wanted to purchase a house in a good school district, because of his son.
But in earlier testimony, it was stated they only had the Darryl’s son Jack during the summer time.
Juror : “So at that point I felt like, ok, she’s lying to my face, I can’t give any credit to any of her testimony.”
However, in Darryl Brewer’s testimony from the first trial, it was explained that Jack’s mother had plans to re-marry, and move to that area, to be close to Jack. There was shared custody , and Jack would live with Darryl part of the time. So in fact there was no reason to believe Jodi’s testimony was untrue.
Were these jurors fit to judge a case of this complexity?
