RCW 10.61.060
Reconsideration of verdict.
When there is a verdict of conviction in which it appears to the court that
the jury have mistaken the law, the court may explain the reason for that
opinion, and direct the jury to reconsider the verdict; and if after such
reconsideration they return the same verdict it must be entered, but it
shall be good cause for new trial. When there is a verdict of acquittal
the court cannot require the jury to reconsider it.

[1891 c 28 78; Code 1881 1100; 1873 p 239 261; 1854 p 121 125; RRS
2170.]
