I can't believe that a family would have to go through the ordeal that the Kennedy family of Martinez is being forced to endure. I am referring to the case of Jason Kennedy.
Mr. Kennedy might have been convicted in the first trial if the evidence against him proved him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. One would think that by the second trial, and for sure by the third, the jury might have been convinced of his guilt.
Mr. Kennedy, however, faces a fourth trial, which has put him and his family in severe financial and psychological hardship. That this could happen to anyone is unbelievable. If the law can't prove him guilty to a jury of his peers by this time, why don't they just close the book and go home?
