Three jurors have been selected so far for the Derek Chauvin trial and six others in the candidate pool dismissed for various reasons. One juror, who says she has a relative in law enforcement, said she was excited when she was summoned for jury duty and understands the weight of deciding a case…

“You and a group of people can determine the outcome of another person’s life whether it be guilty or not guilty that decision alone for the rest of their life so it’s important for people who are going to take the time and be responsible about it and really like think it over, think it through, and make a proper decision.”

In all, there will be 12 jurors and 2 alternates for the trial. Jury selection is expected to take several weeks. Opening arguments are set for March 29th.
