Jury sequestration

Jury sequestration is the isolation of a jury to avoid accidental or deliberate tainting.[1] Although sequestration is rare, publicity surrounding a trial and interested parties may interfere with juror objectivity; a judge may order that a jury be sequestered in order to prevent others from tampering with members of the jury through undue persuasion, threats, or bribes.[2]
