In the murder case of 23-year-old Rachel Hoffman, she was killed while working as a confidential informant for the Tallahassee Police Department last month. Now, one of the two men suspected of her murder wants his attorney to question jurors in his trial.
Andrea Green was one of the men Hoffman met with before her murder.

With all of the media coverage in this case--Green's public defender, Ines Suber, says he wants to be assured that the jury is not biased. Suber says Green has a right to do this and so a motion was submitted to the clerk of courts Friday. A judge is expected to decide whether to grant the request on Tuesday.

    Please remember grand juries are different than trial juries. Grand juries investigate whether or not there is enough evidence (provided by the prosecution) to bring criminal charges against people involved (suspects or not). Law enforcement can be held accountable for some things too if the grand jury finds sufficient evidence to do so. THIS IS NOT THE TRIAL OF THESE TWO MEN. Either the jury finds there is enough evidence to try them or they can let them go free. The defense really has nothing to do with this part of the process.

    They also said that they lead police to her body. Does that mean they are innocent?? Get a clue!! And keep your prejudice remarks to yourself. I am tired of people like you who are always trying to make this a race issue. It's not about the color, it's about the crime!

    Nat's quote: that had her working as an informant and try them for her death too. because of their negligence and stupidity in having her as an informant! Law enforecement was not negligent or stupid, Rachael Hoffman was. She deliberately and defiantly went against what law enforcement told her to do. She became an informant willingly. She DID NOT consult her attorney or parents. Then when it was time to do the deed, she left the contact area after law enforcement told her NOT to leave, and she went to another area where she lost her life all because she did not listen.

    str8up, the guys showed the cops where the body was. Did you know where it was? It's morons like you who causes trouble within the community by your racist thoughts. If this was your daughter or mother would you still feel the same.

    I have not read in the paper where this young and his companion have been found guilty by a jury of their peers. The type of talking being doing in the comments is the reason that so many cases are overturned in the appeal process. It is stated that they had the money and they were known to her. Until the full story is released to public, let's keep opinion in the mind. Everybody is presumed innocent until proven guilty. A prejudgment is just going to cost the state of Florida money when the appeals are done. Maintain some dignity for a state that has been embarrassed in so many way in recent years. At least, let the rest of the country know that we are not a bunch of bloodthirsty vampires in the great State of Florida.
