Judge Neal Bronson lifted a gag order on Wednesday, meaning attorneys are now allowed to talk about the case.
One of Widmer's attorneys, Charlie Rittgers, issued the following statement:
"In the middle of the prosecution's case, the defense team was alerted by a number of people that at least two of the jurors had told friends or family members that they were certain Ryan was going to be found guilty. We are currently trying to substantiate the allegations. Ryan is innocent and I firmly believe that had the jury followed Judge Bronson's instructions on the law that the verdict would have been not guilty."
Lindsey Gutierrez, another attorney representing Widmer also confirmed the defense team was alerted by a number of people that at least two jurors talked about the case during the trial.
Fox 19 legal analyst Mike Allen says if this allegations are true, the jurors should be held accountable.
"Its not too difficult to listen to that guy sitting up there with a black robe on," said Allen. "If this is born out to be true I think the juror ought to be punished with contempt and I think the juror ought to be incarcerated for a period of time."
A conviction in Widmer's first trial was overturned because jurors conducted experiments on how long it would take a body to dry.
His second trial ended in a hung jury.
The Warren County Prosecutor's Office says they have no further comment on the case at this time.
