JURY VERDICTS 1
Jury Verdicts
In consideration with the case of Flanning v. State, all criminal trials is not a necessity
to have unanimous verdict. This is a requirement for any government to charge someone as
guilty. Almost every state in the United States have this requirement. When we consider states
such Florida and Pensacola comes out as compulsory that all the six jurors must be unanimous
in their verdict. At this states you find that only those defendants charged with the first degree
are supposed to have jury members who sum up to twelve. Hubner, (2007), for any trial to
proceed without verdict is almost impossible since as most of the jurors are selected at the
beginning of the trial. However, in states such as Florida even if it so happens that only less
than six are allowed to have a verdict, then automatically the case must be unanimous.
One of the most occurring issue when it comes to meeting the requirement for
unanimous is that the supreme court should review the jury system and make it mandated that
every to be a requirement in all cases that attracts unanimous jury verdicts by Buchanan &
Tullock, (1962). The other issue is that all criminal defendants in the jury trials in the state as
well as those in the federal jury trials should share similar rights in unanimous jury verdict.
One of the implication it has is reducing the cost of mistrials at the same time not
affecting the jury-trial process (Bove III, 2008). In addition, the quality of the deliberations
involved should be looked at in order to maintain the procedures in the judiciary system. Most
of the criminal justice professional do not prefer it since; it takes time smaller factions have
less effect to issues like voice dissent.
