Supreme Court To Hear Colo. Dispute Over Racial Bias In Jury Room

October 10, 2016

The Supreme Court is hearing an appeal from Colorado that claims a juror's ethnic slurs during deliberations were so offensive that they deprived the defendant of a fair trial.

Two jurors say a third determined that defendant Miguel Angel Pena Rodriguez was guilty of inappropriately touching teenage girls because Pena Rodriguez is "Mexican, and Mexican men take whatever they want."
