Jury rights outreach – Laconia (3/28/16)


The Rights Brigade was once again present in Laconia for jury nullification outreach.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict a defendant because the application of the law in that case would yield an unjust result. Activists inform jurors of this right via informative pamphlets distributed outside of courthouses during jury selections.

Michael Sylvia was dutifully present at the courthouse as scheduled. However, the court decided to cancel the selection, as happens from time to time. Regardless, the Rights Brigade will always be there. Consistency over time is what will make the difference.
