From: Executive News Svc. [72135,424] Subj: AP 07/18 PsychicJuror DENVER (AP) -- A woman who described herself as a psychic and was excused from a jury after announcing she already knew the verdict predicted in a sealed note to the judge that the defendant would be found guilty, and he was. Daryl Keith Pitts, 18, was convicted Thursday of burglary, two days after District Judge Robert Fullerton released Lynette Todd from jury duty. Todd, in a note that Fullerton kept sealed in his desk, predicted the outcome. Fullerton opened the note in chambers, watched by lawyers on both sides and all 12 jurors, who learned of the note only after returning their own verdict. "I believe Mr. Pitts did commit the crime," Todd wrote. Todd, told of the news at her job as a secretary at St. Joseph Hospital, said she knew as soon as she saw Pitts, even before knowing the charges against him, that he was guilty. She said she has taken and taught classes on psychic powers but doesn't use her abilities professionally. "I think everyone has psychic ability," she said. "You just have to develop it." [END]
