Va. Ct. App. rejects claim of irregularity in jury pool selection

In Reeves v. Com., the Court of Appeals in an opinion by Judge Clements, joined by Judge Benton and Senior Judge Hodges, rejected claims that the manner in which the jury pool was selected violated the defendant's rights.

On one issue, the Court observed that the evidence was "in equipoise," which is always a bummer for whoever has the burden of proof.
