When it rains Michael Irvin bad news it pours. Now word comes out about possible juror tampering in his 1996 cocaine possesion trial.
Seems like Michael's body guard, Mr. Wells, was talking with a person in the pool of jurors who befriended the only black person on the jury. This potential juror, Ms. Brookins, was contacted by Mr. Wells so he could get in touch with the juror to sway the vote in Michael's way. *Wink wink*. Ms. Brookins discussed the case at work and it led a co-worker to tip police about it.
Through recorded conversatoins between the tipster and Ms. Brookins it seems the juror on the case was paid $5000 for her cooperation. Ms. Brookins was to be paid also because she led to the contact of the juror.
Michael and his bodyguard, in response to these allegations, said they know nothing about this at all.
Of course you expect them to say they know nothing. But how can we believe him? Especially after lying to police about a mysterious crack pipe found in your car. Also where is a drug test to prove your innocent in this whole matter? No where to be found I see.
Amazing that people can be bought with money and people who do it get away with it. Let's hope not this time for the sake of great future Michael Irvin employment firing or jail time news.Excerpts from the Irvin Jury Investigation [Dallas News]
