Conviction Reversed After Juror Making Racial Comments Found to Have Implicit Bias

A juror told two other jurors that she saw 2 African-American men in her neighborhood and that such an occurrence was unusual and she thought a conspiracy related to the trial.  The other 2 jurors were sympathetic.  The trial judge failed to remove the juror from the case and the defendant was convicted.  Reversed on appeal.
