Why didn't this lady contact the authorities and notify them that she was being coerced so that they could dismiss her from the jury panel.. and replace her with a stand in... while this prolongs the trial at least the conviction can't be overtunred and considered a mistrial... if we assume that the perpetrator was rightfully convicted.. then a guilty man has walked free, a victim and family cheated of justice and all because of someones inability to think think think.... it makes me sick!

Oaky... I'm the stupid one here.. I opened my mouth before reading the report to the media... this appears to be an open case and it's good that a re-trial is too be held.... chances are that this man is innocent and NOT the serial rapist he's made out to be... but then he could be one helluva an actor.
