The Michigan Supreme Court on Tuesday overturned the jury tampering conviction of a West Michigan man.

 

Keith Wood was distributing pamphlets back in 2015 outside the Mecosta County courthouse in Big Rapids.

 

Wood told people they could choose their conscience over the law if they were picked to serve on a jury.

 

Wood was charged with jury tampering and convicted of a misdemeanor.

 

But the Supreme Court ruled people who haven't actually participated in a case aren't jurors under Michigan law.
