"Licensed Paralegal" Is a Liar

Remember the "licensed paralegal" who is a juror in the Ted Stevens case? She pulled a disappearing act, claiming that her father had died. In reality, the juror, Marian Hinnant, 52, went to the Breeders Cup races. And yes, her father is alive and well.

I don't know why she's being described as a "licensed" paralegal, when no such animal exists in the United States. Nor do I think she should be a paralegal of any sort, given her disregard for the judicial system. As paralegals, we help uphold the judicial system, not undermine it by causing a trial to be put on hold so we can play the ponies.
