Jury Selection Questions About ''Hypothetical Attitude'' Toward Evidence

Counsel is allowed reasonable latitude in questioning prospective jurors. Smith, 477 N.W.2d at 33 n.4; Miller, 429 N.W.2d at 38. Moreover, hypothetical probing of jurors' attitudes toward evidence is permitted. Id. "While prospective jurors may not be questioned with respect to hypothetical sets of facts expected to be proved at trial, thus committing them to a decision in advance, they may be subjected to hypothetical questions about their mental attitude toward certain types of evidence." Miller, 429 N.W.2d at 38 (citing Hobbs v. State, 277 Ark. 271, 641 S.W.2d 9, 12 (Ark 1982)).
