Jesse James Jury Panel -- Cheating Talk

6/9/2010 6:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0607_jesse_james_EX_Getty_02Prospective jurors in Jesse James' civil trial aren't pulling punches on the subjects of cheating and divorce.

Jury selection is going on right now and one member of the panel said out loud, "I have a strong opinion about cheating on someone, my parents are divorced."

The judge has already ruled that Jesse's personal issues -- namely Sandra Bullock, their divorce, and his alleged affairs -- can't be used during the trial, but it's permitted during jury selection to figure out if potential jurors have irreversible biases.

UPDATE: One prospective juror said he was a Christian "and I'm all for doing what's right and forgiving someone."

Jesse's lawyer keeps bringing up TMZ, asking the jurors if they see the site or show.  Some of them do ... go figure.

UPDATE: A moment of levity -- a perspective juror said he has a friend who's "into trucks" ... but attorney for the plaintiff thought he said "drugs." Everyone, including the judge, burst into laughter.

It's going to be hard to find jurors then.



Most people have a strong bias against douchebags.

What in the world is he going to trial for? Boy, it seems like every person in this country is going to court, has to go to court, is paroled, is turned down for work release, or some ****amammy human habit has got them in trouble. But the Attorney General of the U.S.A. is sittin' in New Orleans and can't figure out how to write a ticket.

When you lie to the court its called perjury. When you lie to your fans about your childhood past, its called "creating a marketing image". Pathetic.

so the question is do you forgive a nasty stripper
or do you forgive a stupid ass that would have a baby with a stripper and screw over a cute little smart, rich girl with a
slew of other nasties?

He is not longer the most hated person in America. That title belongs to Shannon Price and her giant gums.

re-check the last two "updates": "prospective" is correct. "perspective" is not. -jesse james has demonstrated his character. i am happy to knOw him (from the perspective of the mass audience). i accept his position and choose not to associate with people who share his moral perspective.

Jesse James' right to a jury trail is honored but my right to a jury trial is not?



Does he have special powers or connections or what?
