Fun fact 4/2/2017

In the federal courts and in nearly all states, a jury in a felony criminal trial is composed of 12 persons who must reach a unanimous verdict to convict or acquit, HOWEVER, juries as small as six are constitutional.

Williams v. Florida, 399 U.S. 78 (1970); Ballew v. Georgia, 435 U.S. 223 (1978)
