One residual consequence of George Zimmerman's acquittal last year has been an increased public interest in jury size. As some will recall, Zimmerman was acquitted by a 6-person all female jury. Currently, several states have pending legislation that would increase the number of jurors in criminal trials.
In Wisconsin, the state senate passed a bill which would require 12-person juries for all criminal cases to include misdemeanors. This same bill has already passed the Wisconsin Assembly.
In Florida, the Senate Criminal Justice Committee on a 4-3 vote approved legislation to require 12-person juries in any case where the sentence may result in a life sentence. In the Florida House of Representative, a companion bill would require 12-member juries for all criminal cases.
