Juror jailed for looking up rape defendant on Google


"I once got a defendant a non custodial sentence for smashing a brick into his girlfriends face.... not a proud moment."

No you didn't. He either pleaded guilty or was found guilty, and the sentence was not a matter for you. You just did your job, which was to defend him to the best of your ability. If the prosecution couldn't prove GBH, or the bench was too soft, that's not your problem.
