Larry Langford goes on trial today in Tuscaloosa, barring any last minute legal maneuvering. Kyle Whitmire and Madison Underwood of the Birmingham Weekly will be live-blogging beginning at 9 AM. Langford’s attorneys asked that the trial be moved out of Birmingham because of fears that pre-trial publicity would taint the jury pool, which will now come from ten counties in the Northern Division’s western district. The trial is expected to last two weeks.
My prediction? It will be interesting.
