depends on the state. I think

depends on the state. I think in some states, like maryland, the jury is the arbiter of law and fact but in some states it is just a factfinder. Jury nullification pleas from a lawyer are probably more frowned upon in factfinder only states.

re: Juries, defense actually wants libertarian jurors, in fact they prefer ethnic minority jurors that they deem less likely to trust the government.
