Well the worry is, if it's sufficiently widely published, the Judge could allow a claim that it was no longer possible to have a fair trial, as people have already made up their minds. The closer to the trial date, the more likely for that to happen.   It's not beyond the bounds of possibility that the defendents lawyers might push to make that happen as a realistic possibility for their clients to avopid incarceration.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
