I think there should be a new law prohibiting Jurors from making money off of there civic duty they are so worried about stealth jurors anymore it just mucks up stuff. Does anyone agree with this ?

Oh my gosh, wouldnt that be awful. People will be doing all kinds of things to get onto a high-profile jury just so they can write a book when it is done. Are there any books out there like that?

Yes a guy from Scott Peterson jury wrote a book one would be Juror for the Anthony trial got kicked off during jury selection because he had a cover and title already made up for a book,They call them stealth jurors and it's really becoming a problem with high profile trials.

I guess they had trouble with stealth juror trying to seat the Conrad Murray case(Michael Jackson Dr) I just think they need to make rules about book deals before our jury system quits performing correctly it is your civic duty not a marketing tool.Would you want people on your jury just there to write a book afterword?
