Fault Lines Issue 2: Hung Jury in Araujo Murder Trial
by Karen Mahtin and Matt Fitt
On June 22, after nine days of deliberations, Judge Harry Shepard declared a mistrial in the case of three men accused of murdering Gwen Araujo, a transgendered teen from Newark, CA, because the jury failed to reach a unanimous decision. Community outrage over the hung jury resulted in a march for “tranny” rights through the streets of San Francisco on June 26, marking the beginning of a series of rallies to celebrate Pride Week.
