Jesus could not be put to death by the Jewish courts because the Romans had placed that restriction on the Jews. So, Jesus had to be tried by the Roman governor, Pilate. Pilate knew Jesus was innocent but had Him crucified anyway. Like the Pharisees, Pilate was more interested in the opinion of the people than doing the right thing.

Jesus was subject to a series of unfair trials where He was accused of things that were not true. For most, this would be a difficult thing to endure, but Jesus suffered in silence. He was prepared to die on our behalf. He was willing to be humiliated for us. What are you willing to sacrifice for Him?
