My dad was on the jury of my friend’s trial


My friend, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Loren Haugen called me tonight and said my dad was on his jury trial for a burglary in the Second Degree case. I voted on the current version of this law when I was in the Hawaii State House of Representatives. The trial started on Monday, September 16, 2013 and ended today, Thursday, September 19, 2013 with a “guilty” verdict by the jury. From what Loren told me, Judge Edward Kubo asked my dad, “How often do you see Riki?” My dad answered, “Once a week, but he comes over more often when he’s hungry.” Everyone in the court laughed. During voir dire, Loren asked my dad, “So what’s the worse thing Jon Riki did?” Just before my dad could answer, Loren told him, “No, I’m just playing.” Everyone in the court laughed again.
