Updyke tried by jury of "peers."

by LeeLee485 on June 21, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

So if you are not from the south or otherwise not a follower of SEC football, you may not know who Harvey Updyke is. Take a minute to Google him. (No really, I'll wait.) So, I'm not a super-crazy devoted football fan, but I am an Auburn alum so when this guy poisoned the trees on the campus of my alma mater, I wasn't pleased. They are holding the jury selection this week...in Lee county, of course. I can't imagine that ole' Harvey could possibly get a fair trial in Tiger country. I just don't think he has many peers in Auburn.
