THS Jury nullification

Jury nullification is a concept where members of a trial jury find a defendant not guilty if they do not support a government's law, do not believe it is constitutional or humane, or do not support a possible punishment for breaking the law. This may happen in both civil and criminal trials. Jury nullification is permissible in some jurisdictions, such as the US. In other systems juries attempting to make these decisions will be held criminally or civilly liable for contempt of court.
