Berry Law Attorney, Justin Kalemkiarian, was recently featured on KLKN News to discuss the highly publicized Syndey Loofe trial.
Due to the high level of publicity that Boswell’s trial, her attorney requested a change of venue for the first-degree murder trial proceedings. “The basic issue with a change of venue is to make sure a defendant gets a fair and impartial Jury,” Kalemkiarian noted.
Mr. Kalemkiarian goes on to discuss the size of the requested county and how this will play into jury selection. “Saline County’s much smaller than Douglas County, and so the size of the potential jury pool being much smaller, combined with the publicity, might make it more difficult to get a fair and impartial jury.” He did note, however, if a change in venue does occur, it will most likely be moved to a courthouse in either Lancaster or Douglas county.
