I read report after report about how fb got them in trouble, well actually what the idiot posted on facebook. from loosing their job to being arrested here is the latest. With someone posting on their facebook that they were voting GUILTY in a trial that wasn't even over, not a smart juror and also shows why jury trails sometimes don't work, people make up their minds before hearing all the evidence.

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.

At my work a girl was told that she had 24 hours to remove pictures that she had taken pictures in the bakery area... there is a sign that is posted that stated No Cell phone, MP3, etc . The girl was pissed off and she just deleted her facebook page and then she quit because she didn't want to get fired.
