The jurors are being protected from potential intimidation and harm in Young Thug’s high-profile RICO trial. Last week, the jury selection process concluded and a jury of twelve was finally selected after ten months of conflict.
Throughout the process, local authorities have consistently voiced concerns over the safety of potential witnesses.
Earlier this year, Judge Ural Glanville’s court issued a temporary order barring the disclosure of witness information following,
numerous threats to kill or harm witnesses.
These concerns have now extended to the jurors, prompting Judge Glanville to take the extraordinary step of keeping the identities of the jurors and six alternates confidential to ensure their protection.
