Jury Selection Resumes

The key phase in the jury selection process for the Michael Jackson trial begins in earnest tomorrow.

The defence and the prosecution will question some of the 250 potential jurors, as they whittle that number down to 12 main jurors and 8 reserves.

Both sides have spent the past few days analysing the 8 page, 41 question, juror questionnaires that are meant to help detect any pre-conceived biases.

Over 100 of the people questioned admitted that they had heard something about the case, or a previous child sex investigation that focused on Jackson in 1993.

The prosecution will lose the case if just one member of the jury decides that Jackson is innocent.
