Derek Chauvin's attorney on Tuesday filed a motion to request a new trial, citing jury misconduct, just two days after it was revealed BLM activist Brandon Mitchell lied about never attending a protest about "police use of force or police brutality" in order to get on the jury.
"The State committed pervasive, prejudicial prosecutorial misconduct, which deprived Mr. Chauvin of his constitutional rights to due process and a fair trial, including but not limited to: disparaging the Defense; improper vouching; and failing to adequately prepare its witnesses," the motion reads.As I reported Monday, Brandon Mitchell, 31, was able to make it onto the Derek Chauvin jury after he checked "no" when asked if he or anyone close to him had "participated in protests about police use of force or police brutality."
After a photo surfaced of him attending an anti-police brutality protest in Washington, DC in August 2020 headed by members of George Floyd's family, Mitchell admitted he attended the event.
Lying on said questionnaire is a crime.
During a media publicity blitz last week, Mitchell encouraged others to serve on juries "to try to spark some change."
Mitchell also said he felt the deliberations "should have been 20 minutes."
