Murder trial jurors secluded from outside world


WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - Jurors in the Raul Ponce-Rocha murder trial will be watching movies this weekend, but the 1992 courtroom comedy "My Cousin Vinny" is not on the approved list.

The jury of eight men and five women from LaCrosse County has been sequestered in individual rooms at an undisclosed Wausau-area hotel since the trial started Wednesday, said Marathon County clerk of courts Dianne Sennholz.

The jurors eat their meals together and can play board games, Sennholz said. But they cannot talk with each other about the case. Jurors are allowed to call home each day under the direct supervision of a bailiff.

"They are pretty good about things," Sennholz said. "They realize the important duty they have as jurors."

Sennholz said jurors are essentially removed from the outside world. They cannot watch TV, listen to the radio, read newspapers or use the Internet.  All books and movies must be pre-screened by court officials.
