The John Travolta extortion trial — an ambulance driver and his lawyer tried to extort $25M from the Travolta family in connection with their son Jett’s death — in the Bahamas lasted a month and went to jury deliberations yesterday. Shortly afterwards, the judge called a mistrial alleging possible juror misconduct. Apparently, a local politician made a televised speech in which he said the defendants had been acquitted. This isn’t good.
So, new trial. Everyone will have to go through the pain and anguish of testifying again in hopes of attaining justice.
