Rights Brigade activists conducted a jury rights outreach operation in Ossipee today.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict a defendant based on their conscience, regardless of the letter of the law. Jury rights activists inform them of this right by distributing informative pamphlets outside of courthouses during juror selections.

State Representative Michael Sylvia took charge of the outreach himself, and reached 70 new jurors.
