Defense Consultant extraordinaire — and Funny

Little did I know when I wrote this haiku 20 years ago today the chuckle defense jury consultant Jo-Ellan Dimitrius would provide one day well into the Simpson  trial when she sat on a back bench in the courtroom beside me. I wrote a haiku on that day, too. But here is the one I wrote on Aug. 10, 1994

Jo-Ellan is here,

A jury picker deluxe.

Defense gets the best.

(Jo-Ellan Dimitrius is a jury consultant hired by the defense on a number of high profile trials, such as the Rodney King beating trial and the Reginald Denny beating trial in which the prosecutors did not achieve the convictions they sought.)
