Jurors in the Aaron Schaffhausen trial have the weekend off; the nine women and six men aren't being sequestered.

They were told not to speak about the case or watch any news coverage, but with such a high profile trial is that possible?

Minneapolis criminal defense attorney Bruce Rivers tells us it's a major challenge for the court, especially because of social media.

The judge instructed jurors to stay off Twitter and Facebook.

Rivers says jurors take their oath to be fair and impartial very seriously. While the jury is not sequestered now, Rivers believes that will happen once they begin deliberating.
