Co-worker who texted juror about case gets reply text from judge

"A co-worker who texted an alternate juror in a New York manslaughter case, providing information about the defendant, got an unusual response from the judge overseeing the case.
After the alternate informed Onondaga County Court Judge Joseph Fahey about the text, he himself responded to the texter, at the juror’s suggestion, the Post Standard reports.
'This is Judge Fahey,” he wrote. “Do not send any more text messages about this case or there will be consequences.'
The judge said it is the first time he ever sent such a text, and prosecutor Robert Moran said it might be the first such text in county history.
“I’m just coming of age in the digital world,” the judge told the newspaper."
