We're told the juror has already received multiple offers from big news operations, including at least one major network. Sources tell us ... the high offers are in the "mid 5-figures."

But French insists ... sticky or not, his client ain't budging -- "He will not entertain any offers that don't include compensation for a myriad of reasons."
Wait. The first sentence. It's a bit confusing. If she retained a publicist while she was still a juror... Isn't that illegal? (It's implied if he put something in the media packets.) If this had been known before the verdict she'd have been bounced. That is a violation of the judge's instructions. Isn't it? Legal experts?


Personally, I think profiting like this is blood money. You don't make money because of the death of a little kid. Disgusting to me.

I'll try that ... but it just ain't working for me right now. I am still depressed. I sincerely hope it works for you. Caylee Marie is still dead and as of today she hasn't received justice. I don't mean to depress you ok! But as Joe Friday always said ... "Just the facts, ma'am."

But they didn't ask any questions about the 26 pages of instructions to make sure they all understood them correctly?

And I think HLN is protifing from "blood money." They shouldn't be making money because of the death of a little girl and from whipping people up into a frenzy by the constant sensationalizing of this case. It is certainly unethical.

Caylee is dead. She doesn't "need" justice. It's the human beings left behind who seem to need the "justice" you are talking about.

That's because the jury was both stupid and ignorant. And now a child murderer is free as a bird and soon to be a multi-millionaire.

There are plenty of cases where circumstantial evidence and common sense was used to convict someone and put them away.

Also, there is no way in hell that the jury could have gone through 6 weeks of testimony and evidence in 10 hours. They had their minds made up when they started deliberating. Now they want $$$ for talking ...
That's the strange thing. George testified twice that it smelled like death because he was an ex-cop and familiar with the smell. Yet he didn't call the police or report it. It wasn't until Cindy found out the smell could have been from death that she called and reported it - I suppose George told her. A number of defense witness who smelled it also said that it was indistinguishable from a garbage-like smell.

Not to mention that the tow truck guy actually pulled out a bag of maggot infested trash - which had to at least contribute to the smell.

When the jury has questions about jury instructions, the Judge cannot explain any further than RE-READING the instructions. What happens is that the jury would be brought back into the courtroom, after sending a written communication to the Court, and then the Court will Re-Read the instructions.

So if the jury has a hard copy of the jury instructions in the jury room with them, they can simply re-read the instructions for themselves. I believe it is the practice in most courtrooms in Florida now to provide a copy of the jury instructions to the jury when they go out to deliberate.
