Ayup, that would make me raise my right hand and swear...

Somebody's got to leak those videos soon!

I got called for jury duty once, in about 1998.  Burglary case, we were interviewed by the two lawyers.  Came back the next day, and the defended had changed his plea to guilty, and we were done.

Now the videos.. I'm usually done in 10 minutes or so..

We need more Jury Nullification in prostitution charges. Who cares that he paid for sex?

Surely there has been a jury trial somewhere where the jury got to sample the goods directly.
(Maybe in a libel lawsuit when one whiskey claimed to be as good as another, for example.)

250 is still pretty high.

200 for an hour, I could see that...

Every time I've had jury duty I was sent home around lunch or so. Never been picked.
 
2013-03-01 02:15:04 AM
I can see the men on the jury now. "Um, your honor, some of us need to review this video in private for a few minutes."
 
2013-03-01 02:18:28 AM
Oh, man.  This would be fun, but I always get bounced from juries.

I spent a few years as a public defender and was a victim of two separate violent crimes, so I'm pretty much radioactive.

The guy in the alleged skype video is 61 years old. I don't care how hot the chick was, 45 minutes of skype porn between a 61 year old dude and a prostitute is on my, "do not want" list.

I just make up a lie that relates me to the case and let them know how tough it would be for me to deal with hearing the testimony. I'm usually outta there quick and also have never been picked.

I'm still amazed that this dude and the zumba lady kept recordings and records of everything, and that she made it so easy to connect her to find the sex videos of her online. The way they did things makes no sense at all, even if they were planning to blackmail their clients.

"Yes, he did," Wright answers. "Shocking."


Goddammit, now I'm going to be up all night wondering what was so shocking.

Who the hell would want to see some old dude fark anyone? Subby has some questionable tastes as do the rest of you or so it seems. Doesn't matter how attractive the lady is. An ugly old man trumps the ruination factor.

Not only that, but who would want to watch porn with a jury in a courthouse?

If only there were a convenient and easy way to watch porn at home.

Pay?  Survive?  Leave?  Sweat?  Cry?  Smoke?  Do a backflip?

I have no idea from the context of the description of the video, what a man might be expected to do as a result of having sex with a younger woman.  Did he rap?

Four years ago for me.  In court for 10 days hearing arguments/testimony/etc, then we took a whole damned month off for the holidays.  Came back for three days of refresher/tedium, then WELP, THE DEFENDANT WANTS TO SETTLE - THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.

I'm hoping that this will be the next libertarian social cause after marijuana. License sex workers, insure them, and keep them as healthy as possible and out of the hands of people that abuse them. I bet we'd see a sharp decrease in venereal diseases.

It would at least reduce abuse against the girls and maybe help more stay off drugs. Would it help reduce rape and sexual assault cases too? Or are the majority of those about power and control more than the sex itself?
 
2013-03-01 03:16:49 AM
I got called once, but it was years after I'd moved states. Yeah, I got called in the state I moved from. Idiots.

Haven't been called in ten years,  I think it's tied to voter registration here, and I'm not registered.

This. I think it's ridiculous to still have prostitution illegal. It will be just another job/business, with all the rules, regulations, and safety measures of any other business. Why we can't be like Germany is beyond me. They seem to have gotten things right and have a very high standard of living.

This does nothing to lessen the stds of garden variety trollops, of which we have an unlimited supply. But sure, legalize and tax the hell out of 'em.

Just had mine.  Got called to a panel within 90 minutes of showing up.  Domestic violence case, details weren't really given but apparently the girl swung at the guy with a bat and barely grazed him and he was a macho retired Marine so he didn't want to admit it happened.  Jury selection took two entire farking days and I was 4th to last called into the box.  I got on, I figure they ran out of challenges and were stuck with whoever was left.

Monday morning we sit around in the jury room for two hours, then the judge comes in and says they're modifying the charges so we're all dismissed.

Did the video make anything stand up in court?

They wouldn't be posing for the camera, I doubt it's all that hot.

Loren: They wouldn't be posing for the camera, I doubt it's all that hot.


I prefer when they don't do that.  When they keep their heads as far apart as possible, to give the camera as much to look at as possible, they don't seem to be into each other that much.

Got called once, but it was the week of finals in college so I got it delayed or something. Never been called since.
