If that is the case, then the convicted murderer is surely entitled to a re-trial.

I've previously been a jury officer in the Crown Court and more recently installed the jury management computer system in many Crown Court offices throughout England and Wales. Therefore I have a better knowledge than most of juries and how they work. Stories abound of strange goings on, including use of a ouija board to reach a decision.

I thought I'd seen and heard it all until I caught this on the radio this evening. Of course, we do not know all the facts and I dare say that the lady concerned will have a chance to explain herself if she is charged with contempt. It's harder to get out of jury service these days even if you do not really believe in the system. Maybe this was her form of protest.

g0nvs - not necessarily. The trial can continue with 11 jurors.

i read a report which stated that the other juror thought that it sounded like one of cliff richard's biggest hit records.

' read a report which stated that the other juror thought that it sounded like one of cliff richard's biggest hit records.'..that would be enough for me to pass a jail sentence.

or should her Jury be made up of a random selection of Citizens as is usual in GB/.

  QuizMan 22:17 09 Jul 2007

She is unlikely to be tried by jury. For contempt of court, the judge will hear mitigation, then decide on a sentence, if any.
