WITN has learned controversial juror Lamuel Anderson, the one who claims he was pressured into delivering a guilty verdict, was a former police officer.
Anderson worked at the Ayden Police Department in Pitt County until October 2006 when he resigned. In his letter to the chief he stated his resignation was immediate, but no reason was given.
Anderson spoke out the day after finding Richardson guilty of a double murder in 2009, saying he was coerced into the decision, and that he actually believes Richardson is innocent.
