Guilty - like maybe: Google Generation on the Jury

Lord Judge of Draycote, the most senior judge in England and Wales, said of young jurors: "Most are technologically proficient. Many get much information from the internet. They consult and refer to it. They are not listening. They are reading."

"One potential problem is whether, learning as they do in this way, they will be accustomed, as we were, to listening for prolonged periods," he added.
