Jury tampering is, as...

Mama said, don't look a box of chocolates in the mouth?
A US domestic violence court case, being heard by a jury which included US actor Tom Hanks, has come to an early end amid allegations of jury tampering.
The defence had asked for a mistrial citing misconduct after a member of the Los Angeles prosecutor's office approached the star during a break and thanked him for his service.
The defendant had been facing a year in jail if he had been convicted.However a plea deal for disturbing the peace and a $150 (£95) fine was agreed.
