49-year-old Cornelia Turner was fulfilling her civic duty by taking part in jury duty in Houston, TX. Cornelia was one of the 20 prospective jurors in a marijuana possession trial. During jury selection, a 45-minute break was called. When the 45 minute break was up, Cornelia was the only one to not return to the courtroom.
The judge in the case was about to issue a bench warrant when he received a call that Cornelia was arrested right outside the criminal courthouse. Cornelia was arrested for smoking a joint. All that talk about weed probably gave her a major craving.
The judge told The Houston Chronicle, “I’ve had prospective jurors get lost before, but it never occurred to me that they might be getting ready for a marijuana trial by, allegedly, smoking marijuana.”
So did she make the jury? You know the defense fought for her hot ass! This woman is seriously my new hero.
