I'm not sure how I would react as a juror. We know Meursault is guilty of murder, so that's not the question. The question comes down to what degree of murder he committed, and what is the appropriate punishment. In my opinion, the prosecutor doesn't prove that Meursalt's actions are premeditated. Thus, I would not support public execution for his crime.
As far as Meursault's attorney, the man was out of his league. He didn't defend his client, he simply provided more fuel for the fire.
