Brancato Juror Bounced, Did Research at Home
When will jurors learn? You can't do your own research on the case you are deciding. Judges always advise them of this.
A juror in the murder trial of former Sorpranos' actor Lillo Brancato got booted today.
A mistrial was avoided Thursday in the trial of a former "Sopranos" actor accused in the shooting death of an off-duty police officer after it was discovered a juror had been taking notes during testimony and doing research on the case at home.
Lillo Brancato, charged with second-degree murder in the December 2005 shooting death of Officer Daniel Enchautegui, agreed to a substitution with an alternate juror after the original juror was dismissed.
So, deliberations start over with the new juror.
