Roger Stone’s Wife Hopes Judge Will Look Into Juror Misconduct

Roger Stone’s wife, Nydia Stone, wrote on Instagram that she hopes Judge Amy Berman Jackson will look into juror misconduct in her husband’s case. Stone is due to be sentenced for witness tampering and lying to congress on February 20 in Washington D.C.

On February 16, Nydia posted a screenshot of a tweet from right-wing pundit Charlie Kirk. Kirk tweeted, “The jury forewoman in Roger Stone’s case lied to the judge and said she had “no recollection” of who Roger Stone was. Yet when you look at her Twitter, it’s filled with tweets about Roger Stone. She lied under oath. Where is here 7-9 year sentence for that.” On February 20, Roger Stone was sentenced to 40 months in federal prison.
