Vehicular homicide suspect debates impartiality of jury

Everyone in Montgomery County is entitled to a basic set of rights, even if they have been charged with a crime. One such protection is the right to an impartial jury trial, as laid out in the Sixth Amendment. Without this fundamental right, there would be no point in presuming a Maryland suspect is innocent until proven guilty. When a case has gotten so much public attention that it is impossible for the defense and prosecution to find an unbiased jury, courts will allow the case to change venues to a more suitable location. Some prosecutors, however, will fight tooth-and-nail to keep a trial in a potentially biased district.
