Without question, the numbskull of the week award goes to Jacob Jock (seriously, that’s his name). The 29 year old juror was dismissed after he attempted to Facebook friend the defendant (a young woman) during jury selection. He was eventually selected for the case.
The defendant told her lawyer, who told the judge. After his dismissal, Mr. Jock decided to claim that this was his plan all along (again, on Facebook). He wrote:
“Score ... I got dismissed!! apparently they frown upon sending a friend request to the defendant ... haha.”
