1. A juror, especially one in a high-profile case who deliberately fails to disclose a relevant bias in order to qualify as a juror and bases a decision on that bias rather than on the facts and law.  *  Although a stealth juror may be fined or prosecuted for perjury based on a lie or omission, the usual penalty is only removal from the jury.
