His giggly peers

September 12, 2008

Attorneys for John R. Myers II, 33, convicted of murder for killing 19-year-old Indiana University student Jill Behrman, are seeking to have the guilty verdict overturned because of (among other reasons) “shocking jury misconduct“:

Jurors in the case have previously acknowledged some behavior characterized as “giggly,” including playing Frisbee and painting some of the men’s toenails.

In May, the Bakers also said jurors drank alcohol at dinner during the trial and were intoxicated.

So, giggly and  tippily. Free that poor man who merely had that one little lapse in judgment!
