Hit-and-run case ends in mistrial

An ASU student's hit-and-run trial ended in a mistrial Thursday afternoon at Maricopa County Superior Court. The four men and four women on the jury were unable to come to a conclusion on whether Reem Bishara, a geography sophomore, left the scene of a fatal accident.

The jury voted 7-1 in favor of a conviction, one unidentified juror said as she left the courthouse. A unanimous verdict had to be reached for conviction. Bishara was convicted on the charge of underage drinking.

Three weeks of searching for an ASU men's basketball coach may all come to a head this weekend in Indianapolis. Multiple leading candidates and ASU Athletic Director Lisa Love will be attending the Final Four at the RCA Dome on Saturday, multiple sources confirmed on Thursday.

ASU frontrunner Larry Krystkowiak and candidates Randy Bennett and Steve Lavin will all be in attendance. Bennett is currently in Indianapolis and is still interested in ASU's coaching vacancy, according to his father, Tom. "Anybody who grew up here [in Arizona] always has the interest to be [ASU's] coach in their horizon," Tom Bennett said. Bennett was not aware if his son had yet been interviewed by ASU officials.

Political Passion

On the cover
Sitting in an office in his campaign headquarters in Scottsdale, Len Munsil looks like the consummate politician. He wears a black suit, with a navy tie over his white collared shirt. Every hair on his head is in place. He crosses one leg over the other as he leans back in his chair. He slowly taps his fingers on the desk as he thinks, planning out the precise order of words before he speaks.

Looking around the office, there is no indication Munsil is gearing up for the biggest race of his life. Munsil, 42, hopes to win the Republican nomination for governor of Arizona. If he wins the primary in September, he will face current Democratic governor Janet Napolitano in November.
