This is an old post I did back from September 2009.
Okay, as many of you know, I was called to serve my city as a possible Juror. About a month ago, I was sent to North Austin to fill out a questionnaire. I was among 300+ individuals. Of those 300 we were narrowed down to about 115 people. Then the 115 of us were called into a courtroom as we marched in we were faced with the defense team, the prosecutors, and the man who was being charged with capital murder. I have never been face to face with a man who had murdered someone else. We were to quickly find out that in the State of Texas there are only two possible sentences for someone convicted of capital murder – Death or Life without parole.
