Suchitra Satpathi Leads Constitutional Amendment Effort

Suchitra Satpathi was the lead lobbyist on the unanimous jury constitutional amendment passed during the 2018 Regular Legislative Session. She was able to masterfully assemble a coalition of conservatives and liberals to support the legislation. The legislation recieved the required 2/3rd's majority of votes in both chambers required for a constitutional amendment to be placed on the ballot. 

Suchitra also helped lead the statewide campaign and PAC to support unanimous juries (CA#2).  Voters recently ratified this change to the constitution on November 6th at a rate of close to 2 in favor for every 1 against. Because of Suchitra's talent, effort and diligence; as of January 1, 2019, Louisiana will join 48 others states requiring unanimity in all felony verdicts.
