The Jury Room
Thank you again for visiting CAL-FIJA…
Welcome to the Jury Room!
This is where we will begin deliberations on how to be extremely effective at communicating the message of jury nullification. In addition our effectiveness in public awareness and outreach for the wrongful convictions and exonerations of innocent men and women incarcerated for crimes they did not commit.
First you have to understand one important rule:
Jury Nullification Is A Power Only A Juror holds
In California we have exonerated 242 innocent victims of wrongful convictions! These are cases where the justic system got it wrong! Not only got it wrong, refused for years to right the wrong!
Today California prisons house over 117,000 prisoners. Roughly between 3% and as much as 15% of this population are potential innocent victims of a justice system that refuses to be reformed. In any society respect for a criminal justice system must be earned on its promise and obligation that justice is equal, and the system is fair. In California, sadly this is NOT true.
The plain truth and fact of the matter is that as a juror in a criminal trial you have the power to decide both the law and the facts and no judge is permitted to direct your verdict.
MORE TO COME…
The JURY ROOM WILL SERVE AS A BLOG AS WE CONTINUE TO BUILD PUBLIC AWARENESS!
