Each juror may have a different opinion at the start of deliberations. To reach a unanimous decision, some jurors may have to change their opinion.
- You should keep an open mind; listen carefully to other people's opinions, and the reasons for their opinions.
- You should be prepared to tell the other jurors what you think and why you think it.
- Be fair and carefully consider what your fellow jurors are saying.
- Do not let yourself be intimidated into changing your opinion, and do not intimidate anyone else.
- Change your opinion only if you genuinely agree with what another juror is saying.
After a full discussion of the issues, the jury should be able to reach a decision that each juror can agree to with a clear conscience.
