The Louisiana State Supreme Court is considering arguments about a murder conviction by a non-unanimous jury 25 years ago.

A 10-2 jury convicted Reginald Reddick of the murder of Al Moliere.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled non-unanimous verdicts unconstitutional in 2020.

More than 1,500 people are incarcerated in Louisiana because of non-unanimous jury verdicts.

The state's attorney general opposes retroactively reversing convictions.
