Tom Hanks Serves on a Jury, Inadvertently Causes Mistrial

Posted: September 14th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Tom Hanks Serves on a Jury, Inadvertently Causes MistrialSubmit Comment
Celebrities are just like us in many ways, including being called in for jury duty. But when they get there, they cause a mistrial and get the defendant's domestic violence charge, that could have resulted in a year in jail, reduced to a fine of $150.

That's exactly what happened to Tom Hanks, who was selected as a juror on a recent case. But during a lunch break, a female member of the prosecution team approached him in a stairwell and thanked him for his jury service, especially since he's such a big celebrity.

When the court reconvened, the prosecutor disclosed that a member of his team made inappropriate contact (jury tempering) with one of the jurors The defense then asked for a hearing to prove misconduct. At that point, lawyers from both sides started talking and a deal was made.

That deal was reducing the charge to disturbing the peace, which is a fine of $150.

Shouldn't the female member of the prosecution team be held accountable for talking to him?

They left out the part where Tom escorted the chick to the closest maintenance closet and showed her his Private Ryan.

News flash, twink: calling women stupid isnt going to make them f*ck you either.

No, I should just browbeat them into joining me in a loveless, alcoholic marriage so I can have at least one reason to feel "not-inferior", one person for whom my NPD delusions can finally garner merit, right?

lol. Loser.

What's it like, Stapes, having someone trapped just so you can say "here's one person I can kick around, one person that justifies my egotistical delusions!"? Really. I want to know. I think we all do.

Oh Stapes. Wait till your wife realizes you need her more for your personal justification than she needs you and divorces your ass. You can then spend your lonely "golden" years sitting in the park, sipping on Bourbon while reveling the poor squirrels with tall tales of your supposed greatness.

lol. Do you even have children, or did you get married just for the power of control over another person?

You're a very sad, little man, Stapleton, but hey, you'll always have your regurgitated litany of ad hominems...carry on, my friend.

"calling women stupid isnt going to make them f*ck you either"

Is that how it works in your house, Stupes? The woman f*cks you? Generally the man does the f*cking, but please do entertain us with enlightening tales of you, your wife and a huge black strap-on.

Your completely fictional yarns about some perceived insight you have to me personally is pathetic twink. Maybe you should go find yourself a nice, simple National city girl you can impress.
