1000 Year Right

The fact is here in Maryland Article 23 of the Maryland constitution states: "In the trial of all criminal cases the jury shall be judges of law as well as of fact, except that the court may rule upon the sufficiency of the evidence in the case of conviction."

In other words the jury rules on the law and if they say innocent then that is that! But if they say guilty then the judge can overrule that and find the defendant innocent due to his belief there is a lack of evidence.
