Los Angeles, Mar 2 (ANI): Indian-born fashion designer Anand Jons attorneys insist that his case should be heard afresh because they were not given a fair chance to find out why some jurors contacted the defendants family more than once, something that demands a new trial according to the law.

Defense attorneys Leonard Levine and Ronald Richards say whatever might have been the reasons for them contacting Jons family, there has to be a new trial as per the case law.

They said that the prosecution destroyed any chance of a fair trial by not letting the truth come out.

“But for the District Attorneys blocking the door to justicewe would have found out why the juror contacted (the defendants sister),” LA Weekly quoted Richards as saying in a new conference.

There is still a considerable amount of discovery that needs to be uncovered, Richards added. (ANI)
