Image of a photograph depicting members of the jury at the Sirhan Sirhan trial.  They found the defendant guilty. 

The court sentenced Sirhan to death, but his sentence was changed to life after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the death penalty - as it was applied at the time - was cruel and unusual punishment.  (That Supreme Court ruling has since been modified, allowing death sentences to once-again be enforced in the United States.)
