"it was discovered two dictionaries and one thesaurus were brought into the jury room during deliberations, a violation of the judges rules.
Six jurors admitted to looking up definitions of at least one of these words: "malice," "malicious," or "unlawful."
The other six said they relied solely on the judges written instructions.
In the case of the word malice, one juror testified,we understood the definition better after reading the dictionary. It was more straight forward.
Prosecutor Jim Fisher asked one juror,After getting a clearer definition of the word malice did you reach a resolution in favor of the defendant? She responded Yes."
Im not going to get into it at this point. Im going to decline to comment because its still an ongoing issue so Im looking forward to seeing everybody Friday morning, says Fisher.
The jury foreman testified she was the one who brought the dictionaries and thesaurus into the room and says she first asked a bailiff if it was OK.
After Harmon-Wright was brought back to jail, Sheriff Scott Jenkins says that the bailiff did nothing wrong.
The judge gave specific orders to the jurors not to bring outside resources and if they disobeyed that it has nothing to do with the court staff, says Jenkins.
The judge will recess until Friday at 9 a.m., when she will make a ruling."

Actually, the Church Lady's catchphrase was: "Well, isn't that special?"
The "Surprise, surprise" comes from the newly-married, 82-year-old Jim Nabors, playing Gummer Pyle, USMC. Congratulations to the just-married couple, and their quartet of wrinkled doo-dads.

You keep going to law school :)
You will learn more from the criminals sitting in the hall waiting on a good plea.
They will show you around the system long before you figure it out how to do it.
I hope you slept well.

Harmon-Wright is no friend to law enforcement. His co-workers found him to be a disgrace.
His mother "fudged" his employment paperwork (proven in court documents), he was an excessive drinker and had issues w/agressivness.
He was over zealous & inexperienced and shot Mrs. Cooke-basically in cold blood; putting others in harms way while doing so.
The jury did the right thing!

I imagine they are. My husband was called for jury duty and they did not allow them to bring sell phones even for jury selection.
