Answering a text message can put you in jail; if you do it from the jury box. A judge in Oregon noticed an unexpected glow on a juror's chest while the courtroom lights were dimmed during video evidence in an armed-robbery trial. The juror was texting. Marion County Circuit Judge Dennis Graves cleared the courtroom and excused all jurors except Benjamin Kohler, 26. Graves held Kohler in contempt, and Kohler spent most of Tuesday and Wednesday in the county jail.
