It doesnt say his name, but they told him in the jury Occupation: The movie doesnt really specify his
occupation, but they said he is a fan of the baseball team, the Baltimore Orioles.
First he is very shy and didnt wanted to share his opinion, he prefared to not speak.
He lived in a slum all his life, and he defends the fact that the kid lived in slums all his life.
He is the third one to call the kid not guilty. He experiences knife fights in the slums, and then he
showed all the jurors how the knife was used and help them change their opinion and vote.
This juror was very shy and nervous in the case. He at first votes guiltu but then he changes his vote for
not guilty. His vote changed some jurors minds so his vote was very
valuable. He doesnt express himself, but by his actions he seems to
not be very convincing of his vote and has some kind of scareness.
Some jurors scream at him but then he get to defend himself and sream them back.
If I get to decide, I would decide at first guilty, but then with all those explanations they gave, I would change my vote to not guilty.
He is against all the world. 43
