Minn. jurors now question verdict in 2006 Toyota crash
St. Paul, Minn. (AP) — Several Ramsey County jurors say reports of sudden acceleration in Toyota Camrys has them wondering if they sent an innocent man to prison three year ago.
They discussed the case of Koua Fong Lee with the St. Paul Pioneer Press for a story in Tuesday editions.
Lee was convicted of criminal vehicular homicide in 2007 after the Toyota Camry he was driving home from church smashed into an Oldsmobile in June 2006, killing three people.
Lee maintained throughout the case that he stomped on the brake, but the car wouldn't stop.
Juror Danny Buechler of St. Paul says he would like to see the man get out of prison within three months.
Juror Margaret Race of White Bear Lake says she cried after reading a news story about Lee. She says the trial focused just on the Camry's brakes.
