Prosecutors Move Court to Order Defendant's Supporters to Close Website

One of my greatest worries in a criminal case is that a juror will disregard my admonitions not to conduct Internet research and will find a website constructed by the Defendant or their supporters.  Here is a link to a motion filed by prosecutors for an order requiring the Defendant's website (Justice for Reeco) to be closed.  The Defendant was charged with auto theft but his website primarily concerns his lawsuit against the police for injuries suffered as a passenger in a fiery collision at the end of a high speed chase in Maryland.  Lots of evidence posted on the website.
