Judge Declares Mistrial After Female Juror Wouldn't Stop Flirting With Defendant

It goes without saying that there is something undeniably hot about the bad guy. I’m not talking about a bad guy, I’m talking about the bad guy. The criminal. The villain. The convict. You want to hate him, but there’s a sex appeal there that you just can’t explain because your head and your vagina are never on the same page.

An Australian judge recently declared a mistrial after a female jury member couldn’t stop flirting with the defendant. The woman was said to have been “flicking her hair, smiling, raising an eyebrow and nodding in a potentially suggestive manner at the accused man.”

I’m all for chasing the bad boy, but holy shit, there’s a line, lady. What did you think would happen? Did you envision the two of you cuffed together, riding a penitentiary van into the sunset? I imagine the scenario in this sicko’s head was a tad more sexual. Probably still included the cuffs, though.

The trial was three weeks along when a sheriff sitting in the back of the courtroom first noticed the woman “gesturing” and “making eyes” at the defendant, who was charged with armed robbery. After apparent eye-batting, the judge had had enough. He discharged the entire jury and ruled that the case will have to start over.

What a moron. But before I jump the gun and judge her too harshly, I think I should probably see a mugshot of this guy. Just to be safe.
