JARDINE: Stanislaus County prosecutor observes pretrial motion in 9-11 terrorists case

Criminal prosecutors on a daily basis stare down some sordid and dangerous creatures, among them murderers, wife beaters, child abusers, hard-core drug dealers and gang bangers, with some capable of checking the “all of the above” box. But few can say they have looked directly into the eyes of five men accused of initiating the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that killed 2,976 innocent people, destroyed families and triggered wars in two Middle Eastern nations, as did Stanislaus County Deputy District Attorney Beth O’Hara Owen last month in Cuba.
