    In this detail of an advertisement released in New York by Rocawear, Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2008, Nicole Paultre Bell, and her children: Jordyn, 1, left, and Jada, 5 are shown. The advertisement was cited as an example of the negative pretrial publicity that could taint the jury pool in the trial of three New York City undercover police officers facing charges in the November 2006 shooting death of Paultre Bell's fiance, Sean Bell, just hours before they were to be wed. The three officers waived their right to a jury trial, opting to have the judge decide their fate in a case that will begin on Monday, Feb. 25.
