The Supreme Court heard oral argument for Ramos v. Louisiana, a case on whether a unanimous jury verdict is constitutionally required in criminal cases for federal and state courts. Evangelisto Ramos appealed to the nation’s highest court after he was convicted of second-degree murder after only 10 out of 12 jurors found him guilty. Under Louisiana law at the time of his conviction, unanimous juries were not required. Louisiana has since passed a law requiring unanimous juries, but it does not apply retroactively to Mr. Ramos' case. Mr. Ramos was sentenced to life in prison without parole. close
