Jury Candidate: “I’m Sure That She’s Guilty”




Britney's driving without a license trial is underway, including selecting possible jurors for the case. 31 people were interviewed for the hearing yesterday, some relaying their negative thoughts on the case:

"'I'm sure that she's guilty,' said the juror, an elderly woman who works as a substitute teacher. 'From (what I see in) the media, I cannot be fair, I have bias. I don't like that person... as a responsible mother. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm sure that she's guilty.'"

Another prospect (the jurors are identified only by number), a middle-aged male employed as a sandwich maker, also said, 'I think this case is a slam dunk. I think she's guilty.'

Another candidate called the idea of a trial 'ridiculous.'"

According to People.com, "the trial on the misdemeanor charge is expected to last three days, Superior Court Judge James A. Steele said. Included in a potential list of witnesses are Spears's father Jamie, several police officers, and a photographer."

Out of the 31 brought in, only one was excused on the account that she "deals with Britney Spears's business manager."

The charges stem from last a minor fender bender last August. Flanagan, Britney's lawyer representing her in this case, says the case is a "a tremendous waste of time."

"A misdemeanor is a criminal offense and I will not plead to one," Flanagan told Access Hollywood. The max you could get is six months in jail, but I've never seen it."

No opening statements or witnesses were heard. Jury selection resumes today.
