A top defence lawyer says it will be difficult to find a neutral jury, to hear a case about the Roast Busters.

It's now seven years since a group of west Auckland teenagers became notorious for bragging on Facebook about alleged sex acts with underage girls.

Two men have now been charged with sexual connections with a teenager.

Marie Dyhrberg QC told Mike Yardley she's concerned about how much media attention the group has already received.

She says finding a jury of twelve people who know nothing will be nearly impossible.
