If she’s ever offered a hard-boiled courtroom drama, Kristen Stewart will have already done her research.

The Twilight star recently served on a Los Angeles jury where she helped decide a case involving prostitution and an undercover cop, reports.

Stewart, 19, was part of a 3-day trial in which a man was accused of paying an undercover cop for sex, but the defense argued that their client is not fluent in English and said that the language barrier caused a misunderstanding, according to the report.

In the end, the jury found the defendant not guilty.

But, according to E! Online, that wasn’t the end of the story. Stewart may have inadvertently caused trouble at the Los Angeles Superior Court after a security guard supposedly requested a photo with the actress. She obliged, and the guard reportedly allowed his friend’s wife to post the picture on the Internet. Now, the men’s jobs may be on the line.

  • “Right now my husband and the security guard are in trouble,” a person claiming to be the man’s wife posted online, after yanking down the photo, “for [the picture] having gone up … because it is confidential when celebrities are in court.”

  • When reached, a court spokeswoman said the court doesn’t comment on jurors. The actress’s rep had no comment.
