Last December, we wrote about the mistrial caused in the Fort Collins double-murder trial of Alan Bergerud.
...three jurors say they were conned by a fellow juror. They say they deliberated for three days before taking a vote. When they took their initial vote, it was 11-1 for guilty. The dissenting juror allegedly admitted doing research on the Internet and discussing the case with others.
The juror is now on trial for contempt of court.
Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck believes juror Glenn Hoffman knowingly violated court rules when he surfed the Web for information on Alan Bergerud's double-murder trial last year. The discovery that he shared his knowledge with other jurors led Weld District Judge Robert Lowenbach to declare a mistrial on Nov. 2.
The case is being tried to the court without a jury and is expected to last three days.
