The prosecutor is considering whether to retry on the misdemeanors. Both parties shocked when jury, on its own, asked for definition of jury nullification. I would say this is the personification of unjust application of the law. This is where a defendant may be technically guilty but it would be unjust to convict them. Probably should put this in the textbook as the prime example.
Charged with felony assault for given him a black eye. If he was arrested, they should ask him to plead to time serve and let him go.

God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.
