JUDGE’S INSTRUCTIONS ON FURTHER JURY DELIBERATIONS Model Jury charge NJ Criminal cases
It is your duty, as jurors, to consult with one another and to deliberate with a view to reaching an agreement, if you can do so without violence to individual judgment. Each of you must decide the case for yourself, but do so only after an impartial consideration of the evidence with your fellow jurors. In the course of your deliberations, do not hesitate to re-examine your own views and change your opinion if convinced it is erroneous but do not surrender your honest conviction as to the weight or effect of evidence solely because of the opinion of your fellow jurors, or for the mere purpose of returning a verdict. You are not partisans. You are judges--judges of the facts.
 When you feel a reasonable period of time has gone by subsequent to the delivery of your charge, be aware of N.J.S.A. 2C:1-9d(2). Mistrial for a jury unable to reach a verdict will not prevent retrial.
