Investigator admits stopping juror from meeting Anand Jon’s sisterApril 3rd, 2009 - 6:28 pm ICT by ANI
Los Angeles, Apr 3 (ANI): Anand Jon’s case has taken a new twist with an investigator appointed by the District Attorney’s office admitting that a juror was stopped from meeting the Indian fashion designer’s sister.
Brian Bennett, the supervising investigator on the case for the Los Angeles district attorney’s office, testified that it was his decision to intercept Juror No. 12 on his way to the meeting.
The reason Bennett gave was that he knew the defence would place a wire on Jon’s sister Sanjana and record the meeting at a coffee shop, reports LA weekly.
Juror No. 12 has yet to be called into court and questioned under oath.
The next hearing, with more D.A. witnesses, is scheduled for April 17. (ANI)
