Judge Chastises Jury After Verdict: Tells Them They Got It Wrong

Posted on June 30, 2018 in Uncategorized


Ohio Judge Amy Salerno is under heat now for approaching and chastising a jury after they found the defendant (name protected for expunction purposes the defendant may pursue) Not Guilty of Assault and Disorderly Conduct. She told them "99% of the time the jury is correct. Now it's 98%. You got this wrong." One juror, feeling berated, burst into tears and another juror requested an escort home for safety reasons as the judge's outburst was made in the midst of the alleged victim's agitated family and friends. The judge further went on to state she would have her chance to get the defendant regardless of the jury's verdict because he had other cases pending in her court (which were later dismissed by the prosecutor).
