The Loo Trial

Record #:
Ming Hai “Jim” Loo, a 24-year-old Chinese-American citizen from Raleigh, was murdered by Robert Piche July 29, 1989. The murder was racially motivated and occurred at Cue ‘N’ Spirits. Piche will receive a sentence of 37 years in prison, but be eligible for parole in 4.5 years. Speculation by viewers prompts questions of justice in the case based on the sentencing and language used on behalf of the witnesses in the trial.
