Seems to me I heard of a Canadian jury member, some long time ago,
being (successfully?) charged with obstruction of justice for failing
to adhere to precedence in their vote.
(Sort of) Side note - AFAIK, U.S. juries aren't bound to vote in any
particular way, law or no law. Canadian juries must follow the law /
- not to take away from Chris or Brent's more refined comments, the
above is just my general impression. (Now refined by their comments.)
