I’d be interested in knowing what, specifically, he was indicted for. What’s the actual law he is charged with breaking?
According to the article: “distributing of such pamphlets at the courthouse entrance violates the law against jury tampering”
The Professor is a crusader, and he has been harassed for informing the jury pool of our common law inheritance — Jury Nullification — before.
There is also a strong current of the War On Drugs here, so we get some “conservative” judges adamantly hammering down on any whiff of “jury nullification” ideas and the persons who would dare say they apply.
