    Men on a jury more likely to convict an obese woman, psychology study finds

    According to a new study from Yale University, overweight women who find themselves in front of a jury in the U.S. face longer odds at getting a fair trial than skinny or obese men, or women with lower BMIs.

    Male jurors are more likely to find women guilty of a crime if they are overweight, the study said. Researchers also found that men are more likely to think the woman is a repeat offender if she is overweight.

    They should do fake trials and see if the person comes out guilty.

    In other news, water is wet. Men tend not to like fat chicks, that simple. If a jury does not like you, you will be convicted.

    I heard this report on the radio this morning. They joked how if Casey Anthony would have been larger, she would have been found guilty.

    Don't think for a second that her looks didn't assist her. Good looking women can get away with a ton when men are making the decisions.

    Make sure you do it in Canada.
    I know a lawyer there who bases his cases on pretty faces.

    Don't get tickled CC, I was just busting chops.
    And like and being attracted to are two different things. I can like anybody, regardless of how they look if they're personable enough. And I can dislike someone totally and still be attracted to her. You know that.

    The real question is are obese women more likely to commit crimes?

    You obviously haven't read the study on what we think about Canadians.

    I like looking at pretty women as much as the next man but it always the pretty ones that scare me. Just watch the show snapped women be just as crazy as men.

    If cleavage were allowed in the courtroom, I'm guessing a lot more females would be found innocent. Just a wild guess.
