It’s About Florida: Panama City State Attorney Glenn Hess

Oct 3, 2013

Florida’s jury system may get scrutiny from lawmakers during the 2014 legislative session.  There are questions about how many people should comprise one, especially in cases where capital punishment is an option.  But what about the composition of juries?  Is anyone qualified to sit on one?  Does Florida’s system make it easier for lawyers to manipulate the outcome of cases?  Those will be among our topics tonight on this edition of It’s About Florida.  We talk with Panama City State Attorney Glenn Hess about what issues legislators should address and lawyers should mind.
