Monday 1/23/17 was the second week of jury selection at Rockingham County Court in Brentwood, NH for the January-Febuary court session. After a very successful 1st week of outreach on January 9th, there were 13 jurors that had not yet received a jury nullification pamphlet. The jurors that had received our informational pamphlet were receptive to more information on the topic resulting in 30 of them taking a pocket constitution! One gentlemen who took a pocket constitution this time commented that the pamphlet “put things into perspective.”
Jury Nullification is when 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.
This selection group will be reporting again next Monday 1/30/17 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!
This operation was conducted as part of the January jury nullification campaign. You can track the campaign’s progress, and donate to support its completion, here.
