Kristen Stewart Causes Courtroom Drama
Why was Kristen even in the courtroom in the first place? Well, when people are accused of a crime, they are entitled to a trial in front of a jury of peers. This group of peers is made up of American citizens over the age of 18, who are required to perform this service on occasion. Although Kristen is a celebrity, she is still a member of the community and was selected as a juror.
So what's the problem? According to the L.A. Superior Court, the use of cameras inside the courtroom is prohibited -- you're not allowed to take photos at all. As for what went down, a court spokeswoman told People that the court doesn't comment on jurors, and Kristen's rep had no comment.
