Facebook Says Guilty

What do the players in the World Series of Poker have in common with jurors? Poker faces. Unless you really (really, really) have a jury, they usually don’t give that many tells.jurors

Of course, now we have a cheat sheet with Facebook. Apparently, a Michigan juror pronounced a criminal defendant guilty while the trial was still, ah, ongoing. Everyone is so enamored with social media and its intersection with how it impacts jurors and lawsuits, so these stories make big news. But just how many times has this happened where it never leaked out? I’m pretty sure I could confess to a felony on Facebook and no one would really be paying that much attention.
