Juries normally have a odd number of members, as in certain/most cases where juries are present, the case may be a case which the decision will be difficult to find, so that would create problems (Which it has before) of Deciding a further decision when the juries make a close tie between the innocent and guilty. So, to make it simple, Juries have odd numbers to prevent having no verdict made. So if there is let's say a jury of 7, and 3 people say innocent, and 3 say guilty, one person will end up saying either choices, which will not cause multiple jury sessions, and lengthening of the verdict.
