>This is the trial I almost had to sit on as a jurist. I would have been a bad choice for the jury because I felt they were guilty and wouldn’t be able to give them a fair trial.
This part we didn’t hear about in the pre-trial questioning:
Halford and Hernandez had moved in as house guests of Danny Hughes, the former drummer in the Steve Miller Band and six-time California State Fair cookie baking champion, who was having trouble with a local street person.
The lawyers never asked, “Is anyone a fan of the Steve Miller Band or considered themselves a Space Cowboy?”
