VOIRE DIRE


          State v. Allen           Androscoggin County Superior Court           Lewiston, Maine 

     Defendant Allen, a black male in a predominantly white State, was accused of trafficking in cocaine.  His defense team retained Dr. Charles Robinson to assist them in drafting their brief requesting an expanded Voice Dire.  The Voice Dire process in Maine is quite limited and is conducted by the bench. An expanded Voice Dire was approved by the Court.  At trial, the Defendant was found guilty of the lesser offense of misdemeanor possession.
