Changes in our Justice: The Jury convicted in 7 of 13 cases. Composed of 12 neighbors. They delivered verdicts in murder cases, robberies and one case of sexual abuse. 80% of the decisions were unanimous.
Four months after the introduction of lay participation in trials of the Province of Buenos Aires, chance determined that at least the first 13 verdicts can be understood as an allegory of the classic symbol of justice: a balance. This because between the first trial, held in March in San Martin, and the last one, held in San Isidro days ago, the jury decided in seven occasions that the accused were guilty, whereas in other six cases the jury understood they were not.
