A Pause for Thought on Louisiana’s non-unanimous jury law and Constitutional Amendment #2

This week’s A Pause for Thought features Southern University Law Professor Angela Allen-Bell on Louisiana’s unusual non-unanimous jury law and the upcoming November 6th vote on constitutional amendment #2 to change the law to require jury unanimity. You can listen on-demand here to host Wayne Parker and Dr. Allen-Bell discuss the history of the 10-2 jury law, its effects in Louisiana courtrooms, and the efforts to reform the law leading up to this November’s mid-term election vote.
