By no means no, and I think the case you're referring to is Townsend.
At least three times that I know of, at the end of a murder trial, juries have gone off to deliberate, and they've made the perfectly reasonable request that they have a copy of the portions of the Criminal Code that are relevant. Someone has made the perfectly reasonable decision that they'll give them a copy of the Criminal Code provision. It has never occurred to them that the Criminal Code provision was unconstitutional and wasn't the law.
It's staggering that this situation could be created, not that the people in that moment should behave that way; that's perfectly understandable. What's staggering is that we should have created the conditions where that's possible.
