Stolen Bike Scenario – Friday, May 7, 2010 (Repeated July 8, 2011)
Reach your verdict without discrimination. In reaching your verdict, you must not consider the defendant’s race, color, religious beliefs, national origin, or sex. You are not to return a verdict for or against the defendant unless you would return the same verdict without regard to his race, color, religious beliefs, national origin, or sex.
By signing below, each juror certifies that consideration of the race, color, religious beliefs, national origin, or sex of the defendant was not involved in reaching his or her individual decision, and that individual juror would have returned the same verdict for or against the defendant on the charged offense regardless of race, color, religious beliefs, national origin, or sex of the defendant.
I will not decide the issues in this case based on biases. This includes gut feelings, prejudices, stereotypes, personal likes or dislikes, sympathies, or generalizations.
