Here is a story about a jury that not only acquitted the defendant (Dr. Jon Norberg) on charges that he drugged his wife and then had sex with her unconscious body, but also assisted him with getting the state to return his license to practice medicine. Shortly after being charged with the aforementioned crime, Dr. Norberg had his medical license suspended. Fortunately for Dr. Norberg, his jurors really connected with him and thought that he should have never been charged. As a result, they took it upon themselves to help him get his life back in order. At the conclusion of his trial, all the jurors, save for one, presented an affidavit to the North Dakota Medical Board stating that Norberg’s wife had lied in her accusations, and that the defendant should regain his medical license.
