A young Muslim juror may face jail time for contempt of court after allegedly listening to her MP3 player beneath her hijab during a murder trial in Britain. The judge thought he heard "tinny music" in the courtroom, but chalked it up to his own imagination, reports the Times.
He didn't dismiss her until a defense lawyer reported seeing wires under her hijab and a fellow juror passed him a note accusing her of listening to music during testimony of a man who bludgeoned his disabled wife to death. An MP3 player was later found in her purse, the Times Online reports. The remaining 11 jurors found the man guilty.
