A Wyoming man was arrested for selling “drug paraphernalia” in his store, but a jury acquitted him in just 30 minutes of deliberation, something that didn’t set well with the Police Chief.
But Police Chief Rich Adriaens worries that jury members looked more at technicalities than the reasonableness of the charges. Adriaens said there’s enough leeway in the law that Gillette residents serving on the jury could have made an important stand against drugs, but they chose to act differently.
“enough leeway in the law” to convict
What a bizarre legal concept.
