Greenfield juror skips deliberations, heads to Cancun

Yes, indeed:

“Juror number four, she indicated she was in Chicago, boarding a flight to Cancun and she wasn’t coming back,” defense attorney Robert D’Arruda told TODAY’S TMJ4 reporter Tom Murray. “She not only jeopardized my client’s right to a fair trial, the state’s right to a fair trial, but what about the other eleven jurors who devoted three or four days of their time to hear this case and then she just walks off.”

Instead of showing up for an additional day of deliberations, the woman called Jury Management Services to say she was on her way to Mexico. She said she left her guilty or not guilty vote with the jury foreperson.
