The Jury
« on: August 11, 2017, 05:34:PM »
How unfortunate the jury on the JB case are not allowed to discuss the case and their thought now about what they should have done


4. Discussing the trial

Don’t discuss the trial with anyone until it’s finished, except with other jury members in the deliberation room.

After the trial you mustn’t talk about what happened in the deliberation room, even with family members. You can talk about what happened in the courtroom.

Don’t post comments about the trial on social media websites like Facebook or Twitter - even after the trial’s finished. This is contempt of court and you can be fined or sent to prison.

If anyone approaches you about the trial
Tell a court officer if you’re approached about the trial. If you’re approached outside court, tell a police officer.

Are those jury directions different to any other high profile case?

OH! Right!! Those, too. Thanks for that. You're saying this is common practice. What's all the fuss about. Why should the Bamber case have been treated any differently?

With regards to the ambiance of the forum, it's certainly a shame that you were not on the jury.

This is an updated version. As it's mentioning social media websites. However it would have been similar in 1986.

What's to stop a jury member from discussing a 30 odd year old case ? A bit archaic,isn't it ?
