Juror #9 Biography

Juror #9 is very old and doesn't get around very good.


My impression about Juror #9, he his old but has a lot of wisdom.

Quote #1

"No. He wouldn't really lie. But perhaps he'd make himself believe that he'd heard those words and recognized the boy's face". (pg. 36)

Quote #2

"Nobody knows him, nobody quotes him, no one seeks his advice after seventy-five years."(pg. 36)


At first Juror #9 thinks that the kid is guilty but once he realizes that the old man couldn't get to the door to see the kid he changes his vote.
