Reporter's Notebook: Eye-opening experience (access required)

By Sam Boykin Sitting bolt upright in the unforgiving wooden benches at the Rowan County Courthouse, my heart jack-hammered in my chest. Along with more than a hundred other people crowded inside the courtroom, I held my breath as the jury filed back inside. At stake was the fate of Josh Griffin, a 24-year-old former Monroe police officer charged with kidnapping and murdering a young cocktail waitress named Kim Medlin. After an emotional, high-profile trial, everyone was on edge and the packed room was practically crackling with tension.
