Lying on N.J Jury Duty? Juror Indicted on 3 Counts of Perjury

Lying on N.J Jury Duty? Juror Indicted on 3 Counts of Perjury
BY KATHERINE CARTER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray announced that an Essex County grand jury has indicted Wacoa M. Stanford, 44, of Newark on three counts of perjury for lying during jury selection.

Stanford was a deliberating juror in the trial of State v. Travis Hartsfield, who was charged with murdering his 20-month old daughter, Asiyah Hartsfield.

Assistant Prosecutor Roger Imhof, who presented the case to the grand jury, said during jury selection Stanford knowingly concealed that she had a prior disorderly person conviction and that she had previously been investigated by the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services for allegedly abusing her twins but the matter was eventually dropped.

Stanford brought up the issue of the DYFS investigation during deliberations and other jurors believed it was unduly influencing her ability to be fair in the Hartsfield case, a matter that a juror brought to the attention of the judge.
