What were the lies told by the juror?

The judge determined that Turner had lied on a jury questionnaire when asked whether he ever had been arrested, charged with a crime or convicted of one; Turner had listed only “improper handling of a firearm.”

Prosecutors checked and found that Turner’s record also included two domestic violence arrests, plus charges including assault and disorderly conduct. When he was questioned directly in court, Turner repeatedly denied ever having been arrested on a domestic violence charge.

With that, plus the conversation the police cruiser dashcam captured, it sounds like this guy was trying very hard to get on the jury and find the defendant not guilty; a so called stealth juror.

It might be rare, but March seems to be the month when this is happening in many spots.
