The first jury trial in Korea was held in Daegu yesterday.
The case concerned the aggravated battery and robbery of a woman in her 70s.
The first most alarming aspect of the case is that the defendant requested the trial on Jan 10 and the trial was held yesterday. Korea does have an efficient criminal justice system even in the case of their first jury trial.
I have spoken to a judge that is friends with the chief judge in the case and will update the reader on the specifics of the case in the next couple of days.
