Judge to hear retrial motion in murder case following jury pool glitch
04/26/2019 6:52am

BATON ROUGE- A judge in East Baton Rouge Parish will hear the first request for a retrial after learning of an error in the jury selection system.District Attorney Hillar Moore said the jury system glitch is a big issue for the courts. Today a judge will hear a motion filed on behalf of David Bueso.Bueso was convicted two months ago for killing his roommate back in 2017. His attorneys argue that he wasnt given a fair trial because of the tainted jury pool which left off anyone under the age of 26 since 2011.The court has already announced that jury trials are on hold until at least June while the issue is resolved. Last week, the Louisiana Supreme Court ruled that a different murder case at the 19th JDC needed a&nbspnew jury because of the glitch.&nbspMoore said he expects many similar motions filed in cases where defendants were convicted. He adds, that if retrials are granted due to the jury pool glitch, his office doesnt have the financial means to relitigate them. A high number of retrials would also create a need for more judges, court staff, and assistant DAs.Permalink Comments

Be wary of robot emotions; 'simulated love is never love'
04/26/2019 5:35am

SAN FRANCISCO AP - Researchers say that if robots move like humans and talk like humans, even if its only a little bit, then its natural that we will treat them like humans.Thats why we feel sad when robots like the Mars Opportunity rover stop working, or die. As intelligent robots move more and more into our homes, designers are considering the implications of giving robots human characteristics.It makes them relatable and easier to exist in worlds built for people and pets. But some say the life-like designers can easily trick people into thinking robots are smarter and more empathetic than they really are.Researchers expect the conversation to heat up as humanoid robots become more common.Permalink Comments
