Criminal Practice – Jury & Jurors – Intentional Concealment – Prosecution Witness in Prior Trial – Material Factor – Burden of Proof (access required)

State v. Miller During voir dire, while defendant had peremptory strikes remaining, a juror failed to respond when the trial court asked whether any member of the jury panel had been a victim of a crime in Lancaster County or had an immediate family member who was the victim of a crime. Ten months earlier, that juror had testified for the state in the Lancaster County trial of a man who was accused of stabbing the juror’s mother. In order to determine whether the juror intentionally concealed her relationship to the Lancaster County solicitor’s office, we must remand for further proceedings.
