Juror removed after posting trial details on Facebook

A female juror has been dismissed from duty after she posted details of the trial on Facebook and then asked her mates if they thought the defendant was guilty or not guilty.

The unnamed juror posted specific details of a sexual assault trial on the popular social networking site, breaking rules which forbid anyone on a jury from discussing a trial outside of the courtroom.

When the story broke the silly Facebooker was asked to leave Burnley crown court and the trial continued with the remaining 11 jurors.
