Accused of Flirting, Juror Dismissed From Michigan Governor Whitmer Plot Trial

From an AP story headlined “Accused of flirting, juror dismissed from Whitmer plot trial”:

A judge has dismissed a young woman from the jury hearing the trial of three men in connection with a 2020 plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer after attorneys accused her of flirting with one of the defendants.

Judge Thomas Wilson announced Friday that the woman has been removed from the jury, two days after attorneys raised concerns the juror was having too much non-verbal communication with defendant Paul Bellar, the Jackson Citizen Patriot reported.
