Today I conducted a jury nullification outreach operation in Dover.

Jury nullification is where a jury refuses to convict an otherwise guilty defendant in order to avoid an unjust conviction. Jury rights activists distribute flyers outside of courthouses informing jurors of this right.

As the first selection of this particular jury pool, the courthouse was busy this morning. All but one juror took the pamphlet. One in particular instantly knew it was about jury nullification and accepted the pamphlet. The word is spreading.

In total, 111 jurors were reached.
