Clemens Juror Dismissed For Napping
While the criminal justice system may be made up of two separate yet equally important groups, namely the police who investigate crime and the district attorneys who prosecute the defenders, not all the stories are up to snuff.
Enter the Roger Clemens case.
“A juror in the Roger Clemens perjury trial was dismissed Wednesday for repeatedly showing up late and sleeping during testimony.
The unemployed 27-year-old was selected despite telling attorneys he would rather stay in bed than sit through the former baseball star’s trial, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The unidentified juror subsequently vowed to remain “wide awake” but US District Judge Reggie Walton booted him from the panel after he failed to do so.”
If you’re barely paying attention to the proceedings, have no fear: you’re not alone.
