I heard many stories from visitors to our restaurant – A crime reporter told me about the juror
who dozed off in a trial for sexual assault.
The judge asked the young girl victim “What did your attacker say during the incident”?
She was too embarrassed to tell the court, so the kind judge allowed her to write it down.
Her note was passed to the judge, who read it, folded it, and passed it to the jury.
‘I want to ……. several sexual acts were described, ending with – that will drive you wild with pleasure’.
Each jury member reading was visually shocked.
Sitting next to the dozing juror was an attractive lady. After reading the note, she folded it, nudged her sleeping neighbour, who woke with a start.
He read the note, looked at the lady in, couldn’t believe his luck wonder, winked at her, and put the note in his pocket.
He refused to hand the note back to the judge, saying it was a personal matter.
A re-trial was ordered.
