B -- 32 they have so far they they need another eight.
Two would then go on to the third round of of this trial which is the second round of questions were -- going to narrow it down.
To a panel of six jurors only six not twelve for a second degree murder case.
In the state of Florida.
Normally one or two alternates but now undergoing with four alternates because they want to make sure that once they go through this hold lengthy process to very high profile case.
That if they do whose insurer to for whatever reason they don't have to start from scratch so.
Six jurors and 44 alternates will ultimately.
Be picked and joining us right now is Fox News legal analyst -- real -- least.
Am so I would think so far of what you've seen in terms of everybody almost everyone says they have seen and heard a lot about this case right well.
If they say they haven't seen or heard about this case than they've been under Iraq -- and I don't think either side wants that person uninjured but that's that's not the test.
But you've heard about -- weather's been pretrial publicity battered and watch TV you've heard about it because anybody that's written in this world has heard about this case like it's whether you can be fair and impartial having heard about all that.
And that's where the tricky part of jury selection comes and because.
A lot of jurors this is government does not usual case where you know most -- times c'mon Teddy wants -- -- Really had some really wanna be on this jury and a lot of jurors want to be on -- -- and sometimes.
That can be for not positive -- for either side.
The other one a book deal they -- reality show they want all these things on the judge is doing something about that keeping.
Their identities were going to be keeping their -- is back for a while but still they're going to be jurors potential jurors.
The one -- -- beyond the wrong reasons.
So it's -- just because they want something for themselves -- a book deal -- publicity sometimes is just because they want justice for trade show where -- -- -- -- -- exactly but you have to be really careful right to -- -- gonna say that exactly you're not gonna say it's so.
What's really important -- both sides of the good -- -- for jury selection is to try to ferret through that you know who's really being honest and who's not.
And you know they'll hire people jury selection experts I think those people that they're finding -- you know they do the job.
But a lot of it just comes down to human instinct.
And you don't -- how are people reacting you are there answers to pat are they too easy today to see him make it like they've just been practicing and -- but the night before or is it more like reality where.
You know were asked a question about our beliefs and it takes is allowed to think about it and and answer.
So I've been looking for those kind of people in there really are just not.
And haven't made up their mind -- Yeah it's typical for these attorneys also because on the one hand.
They really want to get down to the bottom of it and they want to see true if you are lying right just wanna get on the jury if you.
Just want to be like they want to be picked right.
-- it'd be exhibit until -- otherwise have just been rejected right even if it's not really practical than to be on the trial if it's more than a good thing but I you have to kind of be.
As an attorney able to.
Ferret through all of that but -- Singh and his lawyers have to worry about remaining likable because right jury after jury will tell you.
That -- you know I didn't like that.
Lawyer like the lawyer but look -- -- it's gonna come as a big shock -- -- -- but.
Some people not many but some people -- country don't like lawyers I don't know why it -- it.
So you bet you're right there felt like ability for the from the lawyer's perspective he wanted to.
Get into their heads the jurors has enough.
See who they are -- also see how other people are reacting around them to the questions.
But you don't -- -- come in there and and you know beat them up to the point where than you've got censor it.
You know sitting in six weeks later going -- -- like captured exactly I don't know what that was there right now all right at least we'll thank you.
