Wacky Nevada Legal Adventures, Part 3,254

Suppose for a moment that during a criminal trial for murder, one of the jurors decides she thinks the defendant is attractive. So much so that she writes the defendant a bunch of sexually explicit love letters, and then comes to visit him in jail several times. Juror misconduct, right?

Not in Nevada, it isn't.

Of course, this is a state where you can drink while on a jury, so long as you don't get carried away, so, you know.
