Potential jurors head to Franklin County Courthouse
PASCO, WA-More than 100 people showed up at the Franklin County Courthouse today as potential jurors for a trial that will determine the punishment for a man convicted of murder.
Delonde Pleasant has already spent nine years in prison for the beating death of his girlfriend, but an appeals court overturned the judge's 25-year prison sentence. The appellate court ruled a jury needs to deliberate on an aggravated murder conviction.
After nine years, Pleasant's attorney says Pleasant has spent enough time in prison.
The trial is expected to last until the middle of next week.
