Jury Rights Outreach – Brentwood (12/19/16)

Today I led a jury nullification outreach operation in Brentwood.

Jury nullification is when a jury decides not to convict a defendant who would otherwise be found guilty, based not on the letter of the law, but of the morality of its application in this case. Jury activists distribute pamphlets to jurors in front of courthouses to inform them of this right.

I was joined by Joël Valenzuela. As it was the last selection of the jury pool, almost all jurors had received pamphlets at previous selections.

In total, three new jurors were reached, and one pocket Constitution was distributed.
