In Widely-Followed NY Trial, Juror Fails to Disclose Father Went to Prison; Also Fails to Disclose Pre-trial Anti-Police Posts on Social Media; Conviction in Jeopardy

Former NY police officer was convicted of manslaughter.  The juror lied during voir dire about any family members having been accused of a crime.  He also posted anti-police comments on social media prior to trial.  Some speculate that he really wanted to serve on the jury.  Defense counsel are seeking a new trial.
