Voters approve Louisiana Constitutional amendments

Local

All six constitutional amendments on the ballot have passed.

One of the amendments requires jury verdicts to be unanimous.

Previously defendants could be convicted on a 10-2 or 11-1 verdict in felony cases with the exception of death penalty cases. But now verdicts will be required to be unanimous.
