Recently, a Concord court jury voted unanimously that Raymond Thomas attempted to kill his girlfriend by stabbing her repeatedly. This is Thomas’ third trial after two mistrials; the first was ruled that jurors were not given lesser assault charges to consider, and the second trial ended in a mistrial when it was found that many of the jurors had been dismissed from an alternate trial. Thomas has spent the last seven years in prison and upon the latest conviction, if it doesn’t end in mistrial, will have five more.
