Juror Kicked Off Case, Punished Over Facebook Post
A Detroit-area woman was kicked off a jury for commenting on Facebook that it's "gonna be fun to tell the defendant they're GUILTY" before the trial was over or the defense even presented its case. Guess what her punishment was?
Not only was 20-year-old Hadley Jons booted from the jury for the offense but the judge also ordered that she write a five-page essay about the Sixth Amendment. That's the one that guarantees the right to a fair trial, but you'll learn that once Hadley posts her essay on Facebook and tags everyone in the world just to get some petty revenge.
Jons' status update was discovered by the 17-year-old son of the defense attorney. Since the only thing kids are good for these days is Facebook stalking, we're glad it's finally been put to some good use. Oh, and in case you were wondering, the defendant that Jons had said was guilty was eventually found guilty of resisting arrest. Take that, justice!
