1.2-9 Jury View
Revised to January 1, 2008
I will shortly be permitting you to
take a view of certain evidence relating to this case outside of the courtroom.
This will give you the opportunity to see for yourselves a particular (location
/ item) so that the testimony and other evidence may be more easily understood
and put into proper perspective.
Keep in mind that the proceedings
outside of the courthouse are a part of the trial and are governed by the same
rules. What you observe during the view is as much evidence as the testimony of
the witnesses and the exhibits that are admitted. So, it is important that you
pay close attention to what it is that can be seen on the view. Observe and
Please try to keep together as much as
possible so that if the lawyers or I address you, you will be able to hear what
is said. Any time we leave the courtroom the opportunity for mischief arises.
Do not talk to anyone about the case while we are outside the courtroom and keep
in mind the other rules that govern your conduct as jurors in this case.
