Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. A unanimous vote from the jury is required for a conviction and acquittal?
A: Yes. In a criminal case, a unanimous vote is require for both a conviction and an acquittal. If the vote is not unanimous then it is what is known as a "hung jury" (meaning the jury was unable to reach a verdict one way or the other ). After a jury returns no verdict, the prosecutor may re-try the case, the prosecutor may dismiss the charges, or the court may dismiss the charges on its own motion. This will depend on how the jury vote breaks down (how many voted in favor of guilty, how many in favor of not guilty).
Q. Is it a felony to vandalize a street sign
A: If the damage to street the street sign is $400 or more, the prosecutor may file the case as felony or a misdemeanor. Whether it is filed as a felony or a misdemeanor, depends on many factors including whether the alleged damage is significantly more than $400, whether the person accused has prior arrests or convictions (especially for vandalism), and the policies of the particular DA's office prosecuting the case.
