Storyline

Kate Wilson is once again found not guilty by a jury. Kate, her partner Carter Knox, and her saloon are the biggest problems in Laramie with which Marshal Troop must contend. The newspaper editor shows Troop articles describing the times she has been freed by juries for multiple crimes. In one case her previous partner took the blame for a murder and is serving five years for manslaughter. Troop visits Larry Bennett in prison and when confronted with the fact Kate has moved past him, Bennett agrees to testify against Kate. At the trial Kate's attorney once again seats a jury of men aged 40-50 as requested by Kate. However, the prosecutor and Judge at the urging of Marshal Troop decide to seat a new jury.

Trivia

Wyoming in 1869 gave women the right to vote and by extension to sit on a jury. Laramie was the first city to use them in 1870, albeit on a grand jury and not a trial jury and then only for a short time due to a judge's ruling. This ruling came about also in 1869 after Wyoming passed a law that banned women from juries. That law was in effect until 1949.

Since the series was set in Laramie circa 1880, by that point it would be unlikely women would have been on juries. See more »
