Attorney Page Pate has been representing individuals charged in serious criminal cases in both federal court and the State of Georgia for over 25 years. He is recognized as a criminal defense and constitutional attorney, as well as a legal analyst. Page is often contacted by the media to discuss high profile cases appearing in the news.
In this case, WJCL featured comments by Page to discuss the ongoing jury selection process taking place in the Glynn County, Georgia case against the men accused of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery in 2020. The trial of the three men accused of killing Mr. Arbery is set to take place in Glynn County soon, and the lawyers for the State and the Defendants are currently working through a pool of 1,000 potential jurors to determine the final panel of jurors that will hear the case.
Page has been closely following this case, and he tells WJCL that he believes “this is one of those cases where it’s gonna be won or lost in jury selection,” because jury selection is a critical phase of the trial, and because many people in the community have already developed opinions about the case. Page says “Whoever you get on this jury is going to start the trial with some general belief about what happened.”
