WILKES-BARRE Â The sluggish process of picking a jury for Hugo Selenski's trial got even more bogged down Thursday morning because Selenski did not have any pants to wear. An apparent clothing mix-up led to Selenski having only inmate pants to don when he left prison for court Thursday morning. But the jury can't see him in any prison garb. So Thursday's start of court was delayed until his attorney could run to his car and grab another pair of Selenski's slacks.
Hugo's wardrobe malfunction was the highlight of the week. Nine jurors have been chosen and hopefully the rest will be picked before the end of next week. The thing that strikes me in the press coverage is how much detail they are publishing about these people. They haven't published their names but list occupations, marital status and how many kids they have. I don't remember any case where this many details about the jury are known before the trial.
