Karen Hackett: Re-trying Flint a waste

Karen Hackett

Dennis Flint has now been through two trials in which two juries of his peers could not convict him of his alleged crimes – crimes he was accused of by his former wife.

I do not know Dennis Flint nor his wife, but I do know that we are wasting county taxes by retrying Dennis Flint. Enough already, don’t we have enough places to spend money without wasting it on another trial? Change of venue? Is the district attorney going to keep trying until he finally gets a conviction? What if the next trial is a hung jury? Does he try again and again? Let’s move on.
