Uintah Basin Rape Case Mistrialed Due To Absent Jury

Uintah County Sherrif's Office

The trial of three Uintah Basin defendants accused of gang rape was moved to Summit County. It's been moved a second time now, because dozens of local residents summoned for the jury pool didn't show up.

The Third District Court in Summit County has issued summons to the 36 locals who didn't appear. They will have to respond to an "Order to Show Cause" to explain their absence. Rick Brough has more.

Known for getting all the facts right, as well as his distinctive sign-off, Rick covered Summit County meetings and issues for 35 years on KPCW. He now heads the Friday Film Review team.
