Alex Jones threatened to name a Roger Stone juror. Experts say that might be jury tampering.

On the first day of political consultant Roger Stone’s trial in federal court in Washington, D.C., on charges of false statements and witness tampering, Judge Amy Berman Jackson cautioned people in the courtroom against releasing jurors’ names.

But Infowars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was undeterred, the Daily Beast first reported. Ignoring her warning, Jones broadcast on his show the name and face of an individual who he believed had been seated on Stone’s jury, calling the person an anti-Trump “minion” and launching a flurry of witness tampering and obstruction of justice allegations.

Although Jones held up a photo of a person who had no connection to the Stone trial, legal experts maintained the effect was the same as if the person had been a juror.

Jury tampering is an intentional effort to sway a juror’s opinion or decision in a case by communicating with him or her either directly or indirectly through an improper channel, outside of legal arguments and evidence presented in court.

It doesn’t matter whether he revealed the right or wrong name or image, according to Mimi Rocah, a former federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York. His actions were not about a particular juror, but rather they were aimed at intimidating the others on the jury, she said.

1. Do we need to say "might be?"

2. It seems that the person wrongly identified would have some legal options as well. I'm not a legal

expert so not sure how they would proceed or if it would be necessary to prove damages.

3. thats the threshold with lawsuits is proof of damage BUT in this case, may not be all that hard

if any type of threats come rolling in. I want Alex Jones to keep being stupid where soon he will be a financial ruin and may be in jail as well,

7. Jones previously mis-identified a school shooter,

and that man has sued him for all of the emotional turmoil Jones' announcement caused him AND his family. That trial is now going forward. Jones is going to lose that one, too.

This guy just never seems to learn. Even livestock can be trained not to repeat mistakes.
