Its ill-advised to be using Facebook to contact a defendant, when you're a juror. Not only will you get dismissed, you'll risk getting thrown in to jail. And that's what happened to imbecile 29 year old Jacob Jock. he's been sentenced to three days in jail by Judge Nancy Donnellan.
Jock was one of the members of the jury in an auto negligence case last December. He thought it would have been a great idea to befriend the defendant, Violeta Milerman. Violeta told her lawyer, and the judge dismissed Jock from jury duty. He then posted the following on his Facebook page:
