Juror punished for 'friending' defendant on Facebook

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A juror in a Tarrant County civil trial who tried to "friend" the defendant on Facebook has been cited for contempt and ordered to spend two days doing community service. Jonathan Hudson's lawyer says the 22-year-old "made a silly mistake." He was booted from the trial last month and it proceeded with 11 jurors.
