Sex among jurors could mean new trial

Sex among jurors could mean new trial: "A convicted murderer says his Missouri guilty verdict should be thrown out because two of his jurors allegedly had sex while sequestered at a hotel.

An attorney for Roberto Dunn, convicted eight years ago of killing his girlfriend's mother, is asking St. Louis Circuit Judge Julian Bush for a new trial because of the recently discovered alleged sexual escapades involving two jurors, the St. Louis Post Dispatch reported Monday."
