Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman will have his case heard in just 4 days (December 9, 2008). Glynn Wilson broke the story last night at the Locust Fork Journal that more accusations of juror misconduct have prompted the Department of Justice to reopen its investigation. This has to do with a juror’s flirtatious overtures toward a member of the prosecution team and U.S. Attorney Leura Canary guiding her prosecutors in the case when she was supposed to have recused herself.
Wilson spoke to Siegelman attorney, Vince Kilborn who believes this case could be dismissed completely on Tuesday:
They could very well,” he said. “If it’s unanimous it will come down quicker. If there’s a dissent, it takes longer.”
A commenter at HuffPo suggested that Jack Abramoff’s sentence be reduced if he can “testify regarding Karl Rove’s involvement in Don Siegelman’s phony, rotten, trumped up prosecution.” Not a bad idea.
