A juror in a sex abuse case was kicked off the case after using Facebook to ask her mates whether the suspect was guilty or not.

The female juror was removed from the case at Burnley Crown Court on 18 November after her poke against justice was revealed, AP reports. Jurors are forbidden from talking about cases outside court.

The trial proceeded with a 11 person jury. The unnamed woman involved can consider herself fortunate not to be held in contempt of court after she posted details about the child abduction and sex assault case online and ran a poll asking her mates whether they thought the suspect was guilty.

"I don't know which way to go, so I'm holding a poll" she wrote, the Daily Telegraph reports.

After the juror was dismissed the remaining 11-person panel returned their verdicts. ®
