A member of a pro-Travyon Martin group was caught by a circuit judge trying to sneak his way onto the George Zimmerman jury in Florida, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.
The potential juror — identified on his Facebook page as Jerry Counelis and referred to as panelist E-7 — gave long, rambling answers about his impartiality when interviewed by attorneys, the Daily News reported.
Circuit Judge Debra Nelson asked the unemployed artist if he posted something on March 21 to the Coffee Party Progressives Facebook page, that describes itself as a group “dedicated to seeking justice for Trayvon Martin.”
“In Sanford … & I CAN tell you THIS. ‘Justice’ IS Coming!” Counelis wrote, according to the report, adding that “with the noise WE made … it couldn’t be covered up.”
The panelist confirmed that he had posted the material and was dismissed from the room. It’s not clear if he’s been taken off the list of potential jurors, the Daily News reported.
The judge overseeing the case ordered jurors to be sequestered for the duration of the trial, which is likely to last up to a month, the Associated Press reported.
