first_imgLegal history was made in the county for the first time this week – for all the wrong reasons.Judge Donagh McDonaghIt is believed that for the first time a criminal trial could not go ahead in a Donegal court because not enough jurors were available to proceed. On Tuesday at Letterkenny Circuit Court, two trials were preparing to get underway before Judge Donagh McDonagh.A total of 28 people turned up to serve their civic duty on the jury panel.There are normally a lot more present when a jury panel in selected.Both the prosecution and defence teams are both entitled to make unspecified objections of jurors prior to the panel being sworn in.They successfully reached 12 jurors for the first trial but between the remaining members of the jury panel, coupled with six juror challenges, they had only reached six jurors after the procedure for the second case. The basic requirement for a trial to go ahead is ten.Judge McDonagh adjourned the matter to be tried under a new jury panel.It is understood that a technical hitch may have resulted in the inadequate number of qualifying jurors being summoned to the court.TRIAL UNABLE TO GO AHEAD BECAUSE OF LACK OF JURORS was last modified: July 25th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Judge Donagh McDonaghjurorsLetterkenny Circuit Courttriallast_img read more
