Last week gave us the appalling news
that jurors involved in the Casey Anthony trial were asking for big bucks for media interviews. Juror No. 6 wanted $50,000 to appear on TV, according to reports.
Now, a Tampa Bay PR firm is offering to represent jurors who don’t
want to be paid for talking to the press. And the firm, The Publicity Agency
, is doing it gratis
“Given the public backlash, members of the jury must be scared or worried about speaking,” Glenn Selig, founder of The Publicity Agency, said in a press release
. “They may want to speak out but likely feel overwhelmed given the level of media attention. We don’t want to profit from this. We want to offer to help those jurors who want to tell their stories.”
According to the press release, The Publicity Agency “regularly handles high-profile cases.” Like Rod Blagojevich. And alleged murder Drew Peterson.
The firm also has less controversial clients
