Back in October of 2016 we wrote about this pubestached killer named Joshua Hart who murdered a 95 year old World War 2 veteran and his wife in their Orange home.
Kind of says everything you need to know about Athol when a crudmagnet like this wins a prize from the library:
Well he’s finally having his day in court and the jury selection in the murder trial is set to begin. Except there’s a twist……
Hart’s defense team repeatedly brought up two chief points of concern on potential jurors: extent of media exposure to the murder and the person’s feeling on if Hart doesn’t testify, whether that leads them to think if he is anymore likely to be guilty; legally, it should not influence a juror’s point of view on guilt if the defendant chooses to not testify.
Hart’s lawyers expressed concern over if someone heard information in the media before Monday. Many potential jurors said they had heard about the murder either through the newspaper or on TV. Some also said they heard about it on Facebook. Hart’s attorney said he was concerned if people read about the case on the online blog “Turtleboy.”
This is what we do at Turtleboy Sports now – we get you out of jury duty. Long gone are the days where you have to pretend to be racist in order to avoid several days of laborious testimony about whose insurance will pay for a fender bender between two soccer moms. Now the question is actually being posed to potential jurors – are you now or have you ever been a turtle rider? Those who are need not apply.
Seriously though, what kind of standard are we setting for jurors in general now? We’re excluding people who read Turtleboy, watch the “news,” and go on Facebook? So they’re basically looking to cut it down to just uninformed old people who can’t figure out how to turn the Internet button on. Seems like a bold strategy for a case that involves the murders of two elderly people.
So the lesson here is simple – if you get picked for jury duty and you wanna go home early, just buy a Turtleboy t-shirt or hoodie from our online store and the rest will take care of itself. There isn’t a defense attorney in Massachusetts who would ever let an admitted turtle rider on a jury.
