Today is the beginning of a long drawn out process in the Kobe case. His first court appearance. My question is, do we really think he can get a "jury of his peers" in a town of just over 3000 people who all know the alleged victim? I know the Kobe corner will ask to move the trial, but from everything I read this judge is a home-town judge and will do everything he can to keep it there. I'm not sure I like that too much. I'm probably just over the fence on Kobe's side as to whether I think he did it or not, but just the fact that I have an opinion from this far away makes it hard for me to beleive anyone can walk in that courtroom in Eagle County without a pre-determined opinion of what has happened.
