    Oh. My. God.

    I can't even imagine this....

    I know I am a big mouth - but I WOULD keep my mouth shut if I were ever to be picked for a jury. (and there's VERY little chance of that happening, I know....)

    Really hoping that this incident is minor and had no material impact on the case / decision.

    TBH I think it'll be nothing. Similar allegations and subsequent investigations have happened in other high profile trials and it turned out to be nothing. Someone, maybe even the DT, is grasping at straws. I choose not to worry about this ......yet.

    I doubt it was brought to the judges attn until AFTER the guilty verdict!
    All 4 men had decided on his guilt Friday. I hope it's nothing!

    From the article, it appears both the prosecution and defense were informed at the same time:

    Superior Court Judge Donald Stephens met with prosecutors and defense attorneys about the juror misconduct allegation Tuesday morning.

    Did you read the WRAL article that stated that "WRAL News reported the posts to Stephens upon finding them Monday afternoon."

    Was either the juror or the person to whom they were communicating on GOLO???????

    Oh my.

    If this happened over the weekend as reported, why was it not reported and addressed MONDAY AM? Prior to the verdict?
    Fluff!

    Ugh - Facebook. If this changes the outcome of the trial - I will be beyond sick.

    I would think that the defense would certainly be trying to get a mistrial...... and it would have to be considered.

    This kind of thing just happened in the Tori case....but, it was potential juror who was dismissed, posting on FB.

    Oh please, anyone can post anything online. I'm a little more relieved this is something the media reported to the judge after seeing it on their (WRAL) Facebook page.
    Doesn't WRAL read the looney birds that post? Jeesh. I guess they felt they had a duty to report it.

    Well sure if a juror is personally posting on FB about the case, but this is a FB comment from someone who claims that a juror was communicating. And all this after the verdict.
    I smell BS.

    We'll see.

    I want to barf after hearing this news. I am praying it is all a big misunderstanding. Please God, don't let 1 juror undo the hard work of the whole jury and the PT.

    from wolf's quote:

    after someone posted on WRAL News' Facebook page that a juror was reportedly communicating during deliberations with someone outside the case about the jury's progress.

    could also be someone just saying it to be a troll


    eta: it wasn't the juror posting on facebook in my understanding

    I feel the same, it sometimes seems Michelle's family is being victimized over and over again. Continued prayers for Michelle's family and friends.
