I saw a jury deliver a “Not Guilty” verdict today. I had nothing to do with the case but it was still an exhilarating moment. There’s nothing quite like that tension, anxiety, and fear in those moments when the judge asks the jury if they have reached a verdict, and the foreperson responds, “yes, your honor, we have.” You’re on the edge of your seat, heart racing, searching the faces of the jurors to pick up any sign of what they are going to say, and then, simple as that, there it is: “Not guilty, your honor.”
Really, what could be sweeter?
