Abstract:

Tracy Kennedy served as a juror in the trial of O.J. Simpson. Dismissed from the Jury by Judge Lance A. Ito on March 17, 1995, Kennedy was at last able to walk away from the famed trial that has kept an entire nation spellbound. In Mistrial of the Century - A Private Diary of the Jury System on Trial, Tracy and his wife Judith, for the first time, recount their experiences as a part of one of the biggest legal battles in history.

In Mistrial of the Century - A Private Diary of the Jury System on Trial, Kennedy finally discloses exactly what life was like for the couple in the days leading up to the trial, and how it differed so much from their expectations. In an up close and personal style, each of the Kennedys then reveals in detail what happened during the trial and sequestration, a sequestration that turned the lives of a normal, happily-married couple into an emotional hell. Finally, the book investigates the Kennedys' lives after Tracy's eventual dismissal from the jury, delving into the immense psychological impact the "Trial of the Century" has had on this couple and how they have chosen to deal with it.
