In a capital murder case, I want to question the jurors during voir dire about my client's four prior robbery convictions. I am doing so because I wish to let the jury know everything, strip the jury down, so I can get a true sense of who will oppose death and who will oppose life. My client is not testifying, so normally his prior robbery convictions would not be admissible. Can I do so?
