Jury

Lawrence Liverless is being tried before a jury for the armed robbery and murder of a convenience-store clerk. The jury was drawn exclusively from lists of registered voters and those with registered motor vehicles.

The indictment alleges that Liverless shot and killed the clerk befrore prying open the cash register and stealing the $451 in it. Because the video surveillance camera was not working at the time of the robbery, the prosecution is relying heavily on the testimony of Officer Dusty Broome, who arrived at the scene of the robbery in response to a silent alarm triggered by the clerk before he was shot. Officer Broome testified that he did not see the perpetrator but that, before he died, the clerk said the robber had a tattoo of a dragon on his right arm. Liverless has such a tattoo on his right arm.

The defense objects to the make-up of the jury and also to Officer Broome’s testimony concerning the tattoo. How should the judge rule on these objections?
