Jury Rights Outreach – Brentwood (9/19/16)

Monday 9/19/16 was the second week of jury selection at Rockingham County Court in Brentwood, NH for the September-October court session.  After a very successful 1st week of outreach on September 12th, there were only 2 jurors this week that had not yet received a jury nullification pamphlet.

img_4146Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict a defendant because applying the law in that case would yield an unjust result. Activists inform jurors of their right to nullify bad laws by distributing informative pamphlets.

Emmy’s enthusiastic offering of pocket constitutions was met with a warm welcome by those jurors that had already received the jury nullification pamphlet, and she set a new record by handing out a total of 12 constitutions!

This selection group will be reporting again next Monday at 10AM so come join us at 9:30 in front of the courthouse if you are interested.  Hope to see you there or at future outreach events!
