By the sounds of it she was likely taking that steak back to go into a stew or something that would last her a week or so....i very much doubt it was to go home and bang it on the bbq for a meat fest....

Ooh, I've never been in a similar position asked straight in ur face like that by a thief, and I don't know enough about the overall situation to make a judgement, but stealing beer just for a party is something I wouldn't normally be drawn towards doing or condoning, even from a multinational that can cover the loss.

jury nullification. I have done a lot of reading on this in the past few months. The idea is good the implication is hard.
Did you know that a Judge, by law, can lie to a jury about this? He can direct the DA and the defense to not say anything about it and hold them on charges if they do. He can even directly lie to the jury and tell them it is not allowed. Both of these rulings come from Supreme Court cases. Interestingly it is allowed in Federal cases even if the Judge saws it isn't. He has to allow the verdit and can take no action against the jury for doing it.
