Juror explains doubts behind Corasanti verdict

Doubts over a blood alcohol test appear to have been at the center of the jury's controversial not guilty verdict in the James Corasanti trial.

Jury foreman William Nixon offered his reflections to the media Thursday, a day after the 16-day trial came to its dramatic conclusion.

Nixon said his panel wondered if the tubes used in the test "could have been contaminated."

He also downplayed the impact upon the jury of Corasanti's emotional testimony in his own defense.

Corasanti was found guilty of a DWI charge for which he'll be sentenced in August.
