Potential YSL choose jailed after movie jury choice course of

A woman set to sit on the jury in the high-profile YSL case has been sentenced to three days in jail for filming part of the selection process.

Judge Glanville delivered a stern lecture to the would-be juror before sentencing

The decision was made Monday, and a recording of the matter was uploaded to social media by Cathy Russon, an executive producer for Law&Crime Network.

The clip begins with Judge Ural Glanville instructing the woman that her violation in the courtroom carries a penalty of up to “a $1,000 fine and/or 20 days in prison.”

Glanville then begins lecturing the woman, noting that the court has made the rules and expectations crystal clear.

“Madam, I think given the amount of time and energy and effort and care we’ve put into this particular statement – I’ll say it multiple times for a number of reasons, and you decide you’re just going to do what you wanted to do. ”

The prospective juror then attempts to explain the situation, although Glanville immediately shuts them down before convicting them.

“You pulled out your phone and videotaped our proceedings, and that was in direct violation of court orders. So I will sentence you to three days in prison.”

After the woman expresses surprise at being convicted instead of receiving a fine, the judge reverses his decision.

“In this particular situation I have told multiple people and made multiple iterations of this particular notice and your videotaping of our procedure was just a brazen violation of that particular procedure.”

In a closing plea, the would-be juror explains, “There was so much going on…I didn’t hear it all.”

However, Glanville is quick to reply, “That doesn’t excuse your behavior… It’s an excuse for your behavior.”

So far there have been a few jury-related hiccups

We should add that while this particular situation was indeed a “blatant infraction,” it wasn’t the first instance of a potential jury problem to arise in this case.

This was brought up when Russon discussed the decision further down the thread, and she suggested that the judge essentially wanted to show he meant business!

After all, he had “already despised two other potential jurors for various things.” For these violations, one was ordered to write a 10-page essay while the other had to do community service and “attend the first 5 days of the trial.”
