Clark Rockefeller Jury - It's the College Kids Again

When Bonnie Rubenstein went on trial in Connecticut, it was the a jury of college students that acquitted her. Now in Massachusetts, another pool of young adults on college summer break will decide the Clark Rockefeller parental kidnapping case. Rockefeller's real name is Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter and he is the con man on trial who is also using the insanity defense.

For the crime of parental kidnapping or a family abduction, it is difficult to think of any credible defense including insanity that would exonerate one from this horrible and heinous crime. Let's just hope that this pool of Massachusetts young adults does a better job than that group of Connectiut kids on the Rubenstein jury.
