Facebooking Juror Kicked Off Murder Trial

A juror on a murder trial was dismissed when the trial judge learned through an anonymous phone call that she had ignored a direct order to stay away from the Internet and had posted entries about the case on Facebook.

Among other things in a long list of entries — posted while she was in the courthouse — the woman said the case “intrigued” her and she wanted be in contact with the accused after the trial; that a fellow juror annoyed her so much by cracking her knuckles that “I want to punch her…” and that she thought the defendant was “presumed guilty.”
