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

I conducted jury nullification outreach in Manchester today.

Jury nullification is when a jury decides to nullify a bad law or bad application of a law by refusing to convict. This is usually thought of in cases involving victimless crimes like marijuana. Jury rights activists inform jurors of this right by distributing informative pamphlets outside of courthouses.

I once again led the Manchester outreach operation, and this time managed to get a photo.

Twenty-six new jurors were reached. About a third of the potential jurors said they already received info two weeks ago.

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.
