A prospective juror aptly named SinghDefied the trial judge's rulingHe foolishly searched,Then shared what he'd unearthed,Oh yeah....He did a bad,bad ting.
kingoomieiii: I don't even know where the nearest law school IS and I know jurists aren't allowed to do their own research or hunt down their own evidence.
namatad: Jury Nullification is legal in the US. Period.
ReverendJasen: Boojum2k: Wrong answer. The crime this man is accused of is eligible for the death penalty, which is a legal sentence in Florida. If you cannot vote to apply it, you cannot serve as a juror on such a case.Eligible.If enough citizens can never be found that are willing to apply a death sentence, do they simply keep putting the trial off ad infinitum? At what point should they say "well, since no one in this state wants to kill prisoners, maybe, just maybe, we just go for a life sentence."Personally, if on jury selection, I'd lie. I'd tell them I could vote for the death sentence, but I wouldn't. And if I looked up the defendants name on google, I sure as fark wouldn't be telling anybody about it so the judge could rape me.
