1. The defense can ask the question if they would consider mercy in reaching a decision.
2. They can not ask and it will not be made part of the jury instruction as something they can consider.
3. It is not a reason to excuse them for cause.
That was my understanding, hope that helps!

IF I PUT IT HERE ITS MY OPINION. apparently i have no idea when i need to say that in a post, so this should cover it....IN MY OPINION anyways,
welcome to the gates of hell JVDS.
Jose Baez: I sincerely believe that when we have finally spoken, everyone, and I mean everyone, will sit back and say, Now, I understand. That explains it.
Jose Baez to da judge :
".....that type of testing is unique. we requested that they be allowed to test items and that of course was objected to by the state and and uh the state uh granted or sustained their objection, denied our opportunity to have him test these items due to a very specialized field, subfield, of dna that he is one of the pioneers of uh in the alternative of we were granted the ability to test certain items by an outside lab...."
PT doesn't want to judge but claims she has no problem judging ICA...Wha?
Claims she has no friends... Interesting.
No friends, that's sad.
Awww, she doesn't have any friends that she socializes with. That's kind of sad.

Juror doesn't have any friends (awwww) so hasn't discussed this case. Keeps to herself. Doesn't follow the news.
JMO - I truly do not think this woman could impose the DP or even LWOP if the evidence points that way. I believe her religious beliefs are very strong and ingrained, and she would not be able to do that, law be damned sort of thing.
~ Just my opinion ~
Prosp Juror says She's got no friends, well, not that she socializes with. Keeps to herself.
ut oh this is weird. She has no friends? I am worried.
HHJP: alright thank you folks (I can hear the judge but he is not near his mic or it is not on, I cannot hear him well. )
1319: you expressed concerns about not liking to sit in the judgement of others, is that right?
HHJP: personal philosophy or religious beliefs, please explain.
I don't like to point my finger at anyone. not judging any one because of what people say.
HHJP: would that in anyway affect your ability to rending a vote based on the evidence?
HHJP: can you sit and listen to all the evidence and the law I give you and render a decsion of the defendants guilt or innocence?
I have no problem with that.
HHJP: if the state did not meet it's burden would you have any problem finding the defendant not guilty?
I have no problem with it
HHJP: on the same hand if the state met its burden would you have a problem finding her guilty?
HHJP: have you heard about this case from the media, friends?
HHJP: any news when it first happen.
when it first happened. a little baby got killed.
HHJP: did you hear about who may be responsible and who may not be responsible?
HHJP: you watch NG, any of the news mag shows?
HHJP: read about it in the ST. Pete or any news papers you read?
HHJP: speak about it with friends?
I don't have friends...
HHJP: you haven't been around any people discussing this case?
HHJP: have you formed any opinions or impressions about ICA guilt?
(emphatic) No sir!
HHJP: you can only decide this case based on the evidence presented in the court room.
HHJP: any problem. we are not like erasers, some can get rid of it but some can't. some can not use those things in making a decision in this case?
HHJP: any hesitation or reservation?
