TYLER (KYTX) - One of the jurors from the Ricky Neal, Jr. murder trial talks about his intense experience and tough decisions.
He says because this was a murder trial, he wishes to remain anonymous.
He says there was a lot of arguing, but the debates never became disrespectful.
"Very emotional for everybody on the jury panel. Especially when Christopher Mass's mother took the stand. It was very difficult. Just the clear understanding that the life was taken and he was young, and he was in his 20's. He had a baby girl, and then he had a baby boy that he never got to see, born on Father's Day."
"We have a great country and a great judicial system and it works as long as people are willing to take the time and do their civic duty like we all did."
