“If the jury feels that the law under which the defendant is accused is unjust … or for any reason which appeals to their logic or passion, the jury has the power to acquit, and the courts must abide by that decision.”
A new jury pool will be starting their service on September 12. The day before the primary elections is an appropriate time to inform these new jurors of their rights.
We will greet them at the Belknap Superior Court in Laconia at 8:30 with a nice pamphlet loaded with information that the court will not provide to them.
The jury pool is scheduled to return on September 26 at 9:30, and October 11 at 9:30. We will start a half hour before the jurors are scheduled to arrive. At times the jury is dismissed from the secondary dated in the event that trials are postponed. Call the court (1-855-212-1234) to check on the status prior to coming out on July 18 and August 1.
