It was a good day for peace and justice. It was so nice to show up that evening at the base ready to mourn, only to be there to celebrate.

The military has set a date, however there is some (a lot actually) debate that jeopardy has been attached to the case, meaning that he cannot be tried twice for the same crime. So who knows. We are very hopeful. We have been vigiling every day at one of the gates to the base, and last night we were prepared to be mourning the outcome. Now we have hope and are already getting ready for whatever happens in March.

How could jeopardy be attached to the case if it ended in mistrial? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"><br><br>
Also thought it was interesting that at the end of the article is said that his lawyer didn't want it to end in a mistrial. I'm guessing he just wanted an aquittal which would have been preferred for sure.

Because it was the governement (prosecution, in the civilian world) who called for the mistrial, not defense. And because the governement had rested its case. Jeopardy does not attach only in the event of a completed trial. It can happen after a jury (panel) is placed and witnessed are called. Both of which have happened here.<br><br>
And no, they would have rather finished it up. Ehren was completely prepared to testify yesterday and get it over with. His family is all from out of state. They understandibly want closure. Not to mention that Eric Seitz has other cases that conflict with the new trial date.

We have our final bannering/vigil of the week tonight. Then we plan for the court martial in March. Hopefully we will be planning in vain! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/praying.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="praying">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/jumpers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jumpers">:
