Craig Sandhaus Trial Delayed Because
of Jury Misconduct

Jurors talked to each other about legal proceedings even though they were told not to.

The prospective jurors, who would have been sworn-in Tuesday morning, were not supposed to discuss court matters with one another.

NeJame argued to strike the entire panel, and Apte granted that request. Apte's ruling means the trial will occur later this year.

Initially, Sandhaus' brother Eric was arrested in the attack, but he was released after Craig Sandhaus confessed.

After jurors were released Tuesday, the defense team argued for a re-hearing on an issue surrounding a conflict of interest involving Sandhaus' old attorney.

Apte did not immediately rule on the issue.
