The seven men and five women who make up the jury that will hear the Michael Jackson manslaughter case against Dr. Conrad Murray are a reflection of Los Angeles — cutting across multiple ethnic lines, ages and occupations. Here's snippets of how they described themselves in a 30-page questionnaire used during jury selection:
Male, 51, Hispanic
A mail carrier who occasionally watches "Law & Order," he stated he did not think the justice system treats the famous or wealthy differently from others.
Female, 57, Hispanic
An unemployed former accounting manager who watched parts of the O.J. Simpson case, she indicated she has never bought a Jackson CD.
Male, 45, white
A management consultant who has served on two previous juries, he indicated he was not a Jackson fan but watched the singer's concert film "This is It" because "I was curious."
Male, 32, white
A bookseller who said he'd read about the case primarily in headlines. He watched part of the Simpson trial on TV and was a Jackson fan when he was a child.
Female, 48, white
A paralegal who watched portions of the Casey Anthony trial, she stated she thought the justice system treated celebrities differently because "the court system is so over-burdened that they could not handle the security needed if a celebrity were in jail."
Male, 39, white
A technology worker who indicated he occasionally reads celebrity websites, he considers himself a Jackson fan and owns several CDs by the singer and his family.
Female, 54, Hispanic
An office management worker who occasionally watched the Anthony trial, she indicated she was a Jackson fan when she was younger, but not anymore.
Male, 42, Hispanic
A school bus driver who gets most of his news from the radio, he has never bought any Jackson music.
Male, 54, African American
A technical director in the entertainment industry, he indicated he had watched parts of several celebrity trials and came to the conclusion, "The system isn't as black and white as it seems, but it works based on the law."
Female, 43, white
A British-born marketing executive and new U.S. citizen, she indicated she had mostly read stories about Jackson's children in magazines and viewed jury service as a "privilege and my civic duty to do the right thing."
Female, 36, Hispanic
A customer service representative who watched portions of the Anthony trial, she also considered herself a Jackson fan.
Male, 54, white
A college professor and former animator, he considers Jackson a "gifted performer" and indicated he knew about Murray and how the singer died.
