well i am just getting in about an hour ago. for the last week my family and i have been in court for my brother in laws murder. the jury went out to deliberate at 5pm today. they were dismissed at 9:30pm after asking the judge to be let go for the night. what do you think it means to have the jury taking this amount of time so far. any comments would be appreciated. just wondering if anyone has any experience with the "usual" outcome of a jury based on how long it is out. thanks!
What is the charge? Murder 1, 2? Do they have the option for manslaughter or lesser charges? How long did the trial go? And is there a separate sentencing hearing, or do they determine that now as well?
