Video – What Type Of Questions Should My Attorney Ask When Picking A Jury In My Criminal Case?

“So, the questions that you are asking, what are you trying to ascertain?”

Spencer Freeman – Criminal Defense Attorney – Pierce County, WA

“A couple of things, I mean, a little bit of personality. A little bit of…the obvious things are…are you a racist? Or do you think the cops are always right? But I am also going to try to ascertain some of their political views. The best questions I’ve asked, most helpful to me, is where do you get your news?”

Ray Hrdlicka – Host – Attorneys.Media

“That’s really interesting!”

Spencer Freeman – Criminal Defense Attorney – Pierce County, WA

“Somebody say I get my news solely from Fox News, I know that they’re generally very conservative and they’re going to view a criminal case from a very conservative standpoint. That’s not going to be good for me. If somebody says I get my news from NPR, they’re very liberal, they’re likely, somewhat, anti-government. They’re going to be willing to question police. They’re going to be willing to question prosecutors. That’s the type of person I’m more likely wanting to have on my jury. But you’re also going to be asking other questions. You want to know if people have had any specific experiences with the criminal law in some ways. Have they been a victim to a crime? You know, somebody who’s been a victim to a crime may not have an unbiased view of somebody charged with a crime.”
