Season 28 Episode 7 | 28m 1s | Video has closed captioning.

Since March, there has barely been any criminal jury trials anywhere in the country. Now, courts are concerned how they'll ever get twelve people to sit next to each other in a courtroom again. Hundreds of defendants have been sitting in jail cells indefinitely, with no certainty on when a jury of their peers will decide their fate. Citizens and justice workers discuss their concerns.
