NC Statue

Tom,

As much as I love your way of thinking and hate the thought of ever disagreeing with you, I submit the following for clarification (which, may, should have been included in the story after just a small amount of research by the reporter):

North Carolina addresses the concept of "Jury Tampering" in North Carolina General Statue 14-225.2. In this statue a "juror" is defined as, "a grand juror or a petit juror and includes a person who has been drawn or has been summoned to attend as a prospective juror".

The defense attorney could have been having coffee with a friend, before trial, and discussed the case with a "summoned or prospective juror" sitting within earshot. Something that benign could be construed as, "Jury Tampering"

That is just my, speculative, observation.
