Robert talks with Charles Ogletree of Harvard Law School and Craig Haney from the University of California, Santa Cruz, about the verdict in the trial of Terry Nichols. The jury returned a verdict of guilty for the count of conspiracy in to bomb the federal building in Oklahoma City, but not guilty for murder in the first and second degree. Instead, they found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter. Ogletree sorts out the legal inconsistencies of the verdicts, and Haney, who is a professor of psychology and legal scholar, talks about what happens to jurors when grappling with such a complex case.
