Jury nullification

Jury nullification occurs when a jury returns a
verdict of "Not Guilty" despite its belief that
the defendant is guilty of the violation charged.
The jury in effect nullifies a law that it
believes is either immoral or wrongly applied to
the defendant whose fate that(sic) are charged
with deciding.
