Juror faces heat for Facebook post

Posted: Aug 31, 2010 6:41 AM EDT

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) - A lawyer wants the book thrown at a juror -- the Facebook.

Hadley Jons could be found in contempt of court later this week, for posting about a trial on her Facebook page. The 20-year-old Jons was a juror in a case of resisting arrest, in a Macomb County, Michigan, court.

She wrote that it's "gonna be fun to tell the defendant they're guilty."

But the trial wasn't over yet.

A defense lawyer tells The Macomb Daily that Jons deserves at least a few hours in jail.

If only this were true . . .

As far as the idiot posting to the internet about a trial while acting as a juror, some people should simply not be allowed to own a pc.

Remember that episode of "The Shield" where Vic tortures a confession out of a guy by beating him with a Facebook?

Some people should not be allowed to be jurors either. I would hate that somebody this stupid could actually decide my fate.

Well, the guy isn't from Florida but the NBC affiliate reporting this story is so that has to mean something.

A little more on the story courtesy of this link.

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. — A judge removed a juror from a trial in suburban Detroit after the young woman wrote on Facebook that the defendant was guilty. The problem? The trial wasn't over. Hadley Jons, of Warren just north of Detroit, could be found in contempt when she returns to the Macomb County circuit court Thursday.

Jons, 20, was a juror in a case of resisting arrest. On Aug. 11, a day off from the trial and before the prosecution finished its case, she wrote on Facebook that it was "gonna be fun to tell the defendant they're guilty."

The post was discovered by defense lawyer Saleema Sheikh's son.

Circuit Judge Diane Druzinski confronted Jons the next day and replaced her with an alternate.

"You don't know how disturbing this is," Druzinski said, according to The Macomb Daily.

A message seeking comment was left for Jons on Monday.

"I would like to see her get some jail time, nothing major, a few hours or overnight," Sheikh said. "This is the jury system. People need to know how important it is."

Sheikh's son, Jaxon Goodman, discovered the comment while checking jurors' names on the Internet. He works in his mother's law office.

"I'm really proud of him," Sheikh said.
So, is this a common practice I wonder...looking up jurors on the internet trying to dig up some dirt on them?

The thread title makes it seem like the OP is either surprised by or against action being taken against this dip shit.

Good. More people need to realize that Facebook does require that you post every single thought that pops into your head.

Are you kidding? If it weren't for computers, this idiot would've been in deliberations.

Well how do they pick jurors, the phonebook? And they're surprised at what they get?
