Nodine jury selection may end, trial begin today

Prosecutors and attorneys for former Mobile County Commissioner Stephen Nodine questioned yesterday potential jurors behind closed doors. Baldwin County Circuit Judge Charles Partin had already whittled the panel of 61 down to 38. District Attorney Judy Newcomb told reporters the jury will be selected, and the trial may begin, sometime today.

Besides asking questions about the potential jurors’ knowledge of the case, Nodine and the victim, attorneys’ questions included what bumper stickers the potential jurors had on their cars, whether they drank alcohol, whether they had any medical training, whether they had any opinions on elective plastic surgery, whether they attended any BP oil spill meetings, whether they hunted regularly and whether they liked guns.
