Eager Prosecutor Cuts Short Tom Hanks' Career As Juror

A trial in which actor Tom Hanks was serving as a juror skidded to a halt when a prosecutor not assigned to the case approached him during a break and "thanked him" for his service. Oh, dear. The D.A. on the case came to know about the communication and reported it to the judge. As a result, both the D.A. and the defense team reached a plea deal. No one faults Mr. Hanks, who by all accounts seems to have been both gracious and serious about his civic duty.
