Justin Ross Harris Found Guilty
In a highly publicized case, Justin Ross Harris was found guilty on all eight charges against him in a case where he was accused of killing his own son by leaving him in a car seat in a hot car all day. The case received so much publicity that the trial had to be moved from Cobb County, where the crime occurred, to Brunswick, Georgia. Harris claimed he simply forgot to drop his son off at his day care, while the prosecution claimed he did it deliberately because he wanted to live a child-free life.
