What is it really like to be sequestered? For Tracy Kennedy, who held seat Number 3 in the OJ Simpson double murder case, it was dehumanizing, isolating, and demeaning. He was no longer called by his name but by his new identity, Juror Number 602. He was constantly monitored by L.A. County Sheriff's deputies. Contact with his wife, Judith, was limited to a few hours per week. And always there were rules, like the ones all 24 jurors were handed when they were first sequestered - the rules that set the tone for what was to come.
