These 12 Jurors are selected for the FTX SBF trial

Twelve people, including a pregnant physician’s assistant, a train conductor, and a retired investment banker, are said to have ultimately decided Sam Bankman-Fried’s fate.

Reports claim that on October 4 during the second day of the Manhattan trial, the initial panel of 45 jurors was reduced to a jury of 12. In a one-minute introduction, the prospective jurors gave brief summaries of their backgrounds, career histories, educational backgrounds, marital statuses, and children.

It is questionable whether or not a possible juror who revealed that his spouse had previously worked with the legal team that had represented FX was selected. Due to his employment at the company that made investments in FTX and Alameda Research, a potential juror was disqualified, according to local news.

Prosecutors and Bankman-Fried’s defense attorneys were both advised by District Court Judge Lewis A. Kaplan before choosing the 12 jurors. The final panel, which will include nine women and three males, will reportedly have a female majority.

The 12 jurors are made up of people between the ages of 30 and 60 who work in a range of fields, such as education, law, finance, and healthcare. College degrees are held by five of them.

The defense and prosecution teams each have a 15-minute opening statement following the jury selection. A close friend of SBF named Adam Yedidia and a Coca broker named Marc Julliard who lost about $80,000 to FTX were both brought as witnesses during this time. After that, Judge Kaplan adjourned the hearing.
