Juror Tries to Friend Litigant

WTSP TV logoBeau Zimmer of WTSP television in Florida reports that Jacob Jock, a male juror in a vehicular negligence civil suit attempted to friend the “young, attractive” female defendant. Good for her she didn’t accept the friending. Instead, she altered her attorney, who told the judge, who kicked the guy off the jury.

Then the ex-juror, who has a large helping of some kind of reverse common sense, proceeded to get on Facebook and brag about how he got out of jury service.

That finally did it, and the judge held him in contempt. Now he’s facing possible jail time.

BTW, USA Today mis-credited Beau Zimmer as “Ben Zimmer”.
