What if the justice system was controlled by the court of public opinion, and a suspect's guilt or innocence was determined by popular vote? Verdict is an online courtroom drama in which YOU become the jury - voting guilty or not guilty to influence the outcome of every episode. In this fascinating alternate world, a population fed up with out-of-control crime revolts and demands change, and so the country's justice system is radically transformed: cases are now literally tried in the court of public opinion. The highest-profile cases are aired live on Verdict, a 24-hour station run by the people, for the people. Citizens watch with fervor, listen to witnesses and examine the evidence ... and then, they vote: guilty or not guilty. Through cell phones, computers, iPads and PEDs, justice now rests in the hands of the general public. Verdict is a riveting social experiment that is already generating a ton of buzz, and it will change the way we think about the world and our place in it. ... Written by
