Abstract

The article discusses the jury trial in America and Russia, their similarities and differences. The author shows how important it is in both countries to distinguish between obtaining information about a criminal case by a jury from non-procedural sources, such as social networks, electronic publications, television and the Internet. How they affect the quality of the jury’s decision. The author also provides data on how many decisions made with a jury in Russia are further appealed and whether it is possible to make assumptions that the decisions that were changed were made by the jury under the pressure of external opinion.
