You knew this would happen.
A defense attorney has filed a motion for a new trial because a juror tweeted- not necessarily about the trial, but about the whole REGJB/juror experience. From the view to the food, to the spotty Judge Stan Blake memorial WIFI, we got trashed.
The juror: Cocaine Cowboys filmaker Billy Corbin.
The Judge: Jose Fernandez.
The Defense Attorney: Sara Yousef.
The Herald story by Ovalle- here.
And somehow, because he can't just stick to his side of the city, federal blogger DOM is mixed up in all of this.
For this mess?
Monday morning REGJB 9:15 am.
