Prosecutor Wants a Retrial on a Guilty Finding

Here is a truly interesting case wherein a man is sentenced to death by the jury, the defense asks for a retrial and shows that a juror knew about the defendant's prior murder conviction, the prosecutor then joins the motion for a new trial, the defense then withdraws its motion, the judge finds the juror in contempt and changes the death sentence to life in prison, and finally the prosecutor tries for a new trial.
