ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I disagree with Joseph C. Fenrick Jr.’s assertion that “inner-city juries … tend to disregard the facts and say ‘to hell with the law.’” (“Inner-city juries,” Letters, Tuesday).

I’ve had the privilege to serve as a juror and to try jury cases as a lawyer in the District for more than 40 years. In my experience, D.C. juries, as a group, possess a high level of knowledge and experience and a reverence for the law and the judge’s instructions. They usually work hard to sort out the facts, follow the law and render a just verdict.
