Nevada Jury Instructions

JURORS MUST USE EVERYDAY COMMON SENSE; VERDICT MAY NEVER BE INFLUENCED BY SYMPATHY, PREJUDICE OR PUBLIC OPINION

Although you are to consider only the evidence in the case in reaching a verdict, you must bring to the consideration of the evidence your everyday common sense and judgment as reasonable men and women. Thus, you are not limited solely to what you see and hear as the witnesses testify. You may draw reasonable inferences from the evidence which you feel are justified in the light of common experience, keeping in mind that such inferences should not be based on speculation or guess.

A verdict may never be influenced by sympathy, prejudice or public opinion. Your decision should be the product of sincere judgment and sound discretion in accordance with these rules of law.
