Jury rights outreach – Dover (8/18/15)

Today I once again led a jury rights outreach operation in Dover.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict a defendant not based on the letter of the law, but on the morality of the circumstances. Activists hand pamphlets to jurors informing them of their rights.

I was joined by James Davis and Seamus Casey for this operation.

James was addressed by a couple courthouse guards regarding how close to the side door he was standing (the guards had an issue with him being too close to the door before). They left a makeshift sign near the door to prevent activists from getting too close.

Strafford Country Sheriff David Dubois came over to explain the door situation, that a guard was concerned about blocking jurors from entering with ease. He encouraged us to keep up our activism, saying he really appreciated what we were doing.

57 jurors were reached.
