A juror jailed for researching a defendant's past on the internet has been refused permission to appeal.
Theodora Dallas, who lectured at the University of Bedfordshire, told jurors a man on assault charges at Luton Crown Court had once been accused of rape.
On Monday Dallas, 34, was jailed for six months for contempt of court. She sought permission to appeal to the Supreme Court but this was refused.
