In State v. Danielle Jennett, 3AN-09-9765 CR, the government charged two counts of vehicle manslaughter and three other related offenses. In January 2010, Superior Court Judge Jack Smith presided over a jury trial with Paul D. Stockler as defense counsel. The jury included attorney Jonathon A. Katcher.
