Former U.S. attorney general Janet Reno reports for jury duty in Miami

Former U.S. attorney general Janet Reno reports for jury duty in Miami

Janet Reno, the U.S.'s former chief prosecutor, was called to a far humbler position Monday: She reported for jury duty.
Reno, also a former Miami-Dade state attorney, was among a pool of jurors on a robbery and aggravated battery case.
The former U.S. attorney general survived the initial round of questioning: No, she's never been arrested. Yes, she knows many police officers and prosecutors.
Defense attorney Rod Vereen said Reno would certainly be a fair and impartial juror, but doubted if his client would want her on the case.
"She hired the prosecutor," Vereen told The Miami Herald.
A telephone message left at Reno's home was not immediately returned Monday.
