Mr. James Kimball, at 23 years old, was a school bus driver who pursued a 15 year old student he’d known for two years. Eventually their “flirtatious” relationship escalated to a “single-sexual encounter” on or about October 3, 1991. The relationship was brought to light by the parents of the child henceforth urging Mr. Kimball to plead guilty to one count of statutory rape in 1992, where the judge then imposed a withheld judgment with a three year probation. After that, Mr. Kimball was accordingly put on the Sex Offender Registry. Due to the essence of the given facts and case report, the disparity in time from the crime to the present, and the technicality of the psychosexual evaluator’s report, I would not have aired the story on Mr.James Kimball.

This documentary was about a fifteen year old boy named Brenton Butler who was framed by the police. Brenton Butler was arrested and charged with the murder of Mary Ann Stephens.

As a U.S. citizen there are pretty much only three things you should be doing, that is paying taxes, voting, and serving on a jury. Skipping over the first two brings us to jury duty, which many feel to be a nuisance, but really, is it? Our right to a jury trial is one of the foundations our country was built on. Just because you don’t have a choice when it comes to jury duty, doesn’t mean it’s something that you should feel negative toward. Yes, that piece of mail we receive “summons” us to report to jury duty, but don’t think it that way.
