Tom Hanks

Just a Normal Juror

9/10/2013 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0910-tom-hanks-leaving-courtTom Hanks just left an L.A. courthouse after spending a day in the jury box ... deciding the fate of a man accused of domestic violence.

TMZ broke the story ... Hanks was picked to hear the case of a guy who allegedly struck his girlfriend and faces a maximum of 1 year in jail if convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence.

Hanks took copious notes as lawyers took the arresting detective through her paces.  He listened as the defendant's lawyer suggested the alleged victim may have been jealous because his client was leaving her for a younger woman.

Hanks was friendly with the jurors, interacting with them during the breaks.  In court, he even laughed at one of the lawyer's jokes -- which probably wasn't even that funny.

Hanks is back in court tomorrow.

If I was ever on trial, I would definitely want Tom Hanks on the jury - fully engaged, informed and painstakingly fair.

I don't think famous people should be allowed in the jury pool... especially this clown.

Domestic violence against women is justified if the woman provoked the man.

Isnt there a law that says the media cant release the names of jurors until a trial is over? ( If there isnt, there should be) He's trying to do his civic duty and he has cameras following him around.

Being told you're a douchebag for hitting your girlfriend by Tom Hanks is probably worse than any punishment the court could hand out.
