Jurors must not let radio, television, newspaper articles, or other publicity concerning a case effect their decision. A verdict must be based on the evidence presented at trial.
Jurors must not discuss the case with friends, relatives, or trial participants. If you are approached about the case, report the incident to the court officer immediately.
Jurors must not become involved in independent investigations about the case. When it becomes necessary to inspect a scene, the jury will do so as a group under the court's supervision only.
Jurors must be impartial and avoid comments or expressions during the trial that convey feelings about the case.
