MARCY BROOKS, a resident of Indianapolis, Indiana, found herself at the center of a news storm when, in May of 2000, she was chosen to serve on a jury that declared Whitey Harrell was not guilty of failing to pay income taxes. Marcy convinced the jury that the defendant was innocent because he claimed there was no law requiring him to do so, and the prosecution gave no evidence to the contrary. During the trial, the jurors repeatedly asked the court to provide them with a copy of the law that requires citizens to pay income taxes, it was never received. Marcy concluded that Whitey Harrell was a law-abiding citizen and that the IRS and the court were the ones violating the law. She convinced the jury to stand on principle, and the rest is history. Marcy can be reached here.
