    i half expect a hung jury. there’s bound to be one maga on the jury that won’t budge.

      According to reporting on the jury selection process, one of the jurors reported that their primary news source was Truth Social… so it’s a distinct possibility. In the case of a lone holdout, though, the judge and the rest of the jury are both likely to lean hard on them to get with the program.

        That seems like something that should disqualify them from being on the jury.

        “Yeah I only get my news from the criminal’s website called truth where they post a bunch of lies constantly.”

        They can just be replaced by an alternate if they refuse jury instructions.

          I was going to say so, but the NY state code requires the defense to assent to the replacement of an unfit juror, and we all know damn well that they won’t do that.
