Colleen Walsh, a.k.a. Juror No. 11, discussed the jury’s deliberations, her assessment of the lawyers for both sides, and Stevens’s performance on the stand. The juror suggested–as many trial observers had guessed–that Stevens didn’t help himself by testifying. Walsh told the Legal Times that the senator was a sympathetic character at the defense table, where he appeared “kind of hunched over and small.” It was a different story when he took the stand. Jurors were put off by his angry outbursts.
Said Walsh: “We were all like, ‘Why is he testifying?'”
