CRIMINAL LAW AND PROCEDURE - EVIDENCE - DISMISSAL OF PROSECUTION FOR REFERENCE TO OTHER CRIMES OF DEFENDANT
Any discussion of Judge Pecora's declaration of a mistrial in People v. Hines must adhere firmly to the fundamental proposition that every accused person, no matter how evident his guilt nor how great the hostility toward him, is entitled to a fair trial, conducted in accord with established rules, and to the verdict of a jury uninfluenced by improper factors. But did the judge's ruling perhaps exceed what was reasonably necessary to assure the defendant of these essentials?
