Some guy in Stone Mountain is on trial for rape, false imprisonment, aggravated assault and burglary. Thank goodness he's in custody, but check out this tidbit from the story:

"Things have gotten, for lack of a better word, a little weird here today," Superior Court Judge Timothy Hamil told both parties. The judge said he'd "agonized" over the case, knowing a man selected to the jury was forfeiting a planned trip to watch President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration Tuesday. "We're causing a man to miss a once-in-a-lifetime experience."
Hooray for our legal system.
