Jury Rights Outreach – Laconia (1/23/17)

I conducted a jury nullification outreach operation in Laconia today.

Jury nullification is where a jury decides not to convict a defendant based on whether or not it would be just to apply the law in that case, not whether or not the law itself applies. Jury nullification activists inform jurors of this right by distributing pamphlets outside of courthouses.

As this was not the first selection for the current jury pool, most had already received a pamphlet before. Still, 10 jurors were reached. It was cold.

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.
