Jury Rights Outreach – Brentwood (12/5/16)

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict a defendant who would otherwise be guilty, based not on whether or not the law applies, but whether or not it would yield an unjust result. Jury nullification activists inform jurors of this right by distributing informative pamphlets outside of courthouses.

I was joined for the selection by local super activist Emmy Andersen, who came ready with her usual stash of pocket Constitutions.

Since it was a later selection, most jurors had already received a pamphlet. Still, five new pamphlets were distributed, as well as 21 pocket Constitutions.
