I have been following this case since allegations of sexual assault were brought against Mr Clark.
The following piece from The Age Newspaper (17/1/07) got me thinking:
Is it unrealistic to expect anyone to not form a view about such a hideous crime (whether it has been committed or not) ?The jury heard Ms Stingel suffers from anxiety, constant flashbacks and mistrust of men.
Mr Clark denies the allegations.
The trial, before Judge David Morrow, continues and is expected to last until the end of next week.
Judge Morrow excused two people from participating as jurors after they informed him they had already formed a view about the case.
With the statistics indicating that one in three girls/women have been the victims/survivors of sexual assault. That means it's happened to you or someone you know - then how can you not form a view ?
Really interested in the views/ideas of bubhubbers - particularly those who have performed jury duty
