She claimed it was a mistake, but she could face a criminal charge.
It happened one morning late last month.
Everyone going into the Justice Center passes a security checkpoint and metal detectors.
A court security officer using an x-ray machine spotted a gun in a purse.
A sheriff’s deputy seized the gun, along with a magazine and 7 rounds.
They also found the juror had a license for carrying a concealed weapon. But no one can bring a gun into the Court complex.
So, the matter was sent to Cuyahoga County prosecutors. At last check, it was under review.
A report shows the juror is under investigation for the Illegal Conveyance of a Deadly Weapon.
Cuyahoga County Spokesman Tyler Sinclair said, “Deputies followed all proper protocol and acted quickly to assure public safety.”
