  • This is a case that if the jury had known their right to jury nullification, I am sure these boys would have never been convicted. I believe that our city, and its citizens need to be more informed about their LEGAL right to nullify a charge that is deemed in THEIR mind to be unfair and in the case of the Elkhart 4, UNJUST.

  • Exactly right Betty Ray. Thank u. Im glad you are at least aware of it. Attorneys don’t speak about it and a lot of people don’t know about it.

    • Rebecca, it totally stumps me that, even though jurors are given written instructions for jury duty, and in those instructions (at least last time I served on a jury) it states that they can vote their conscience and according to their understanding of the law. I am the state rep for the organization A Fully Informed Jury Association. http://states.fija.org/indiana/
