Can't say we didn;t give it the ole' Girl Scout try,....we started deliberating Wednesday afternoon and still we are deadlocked. We reached a decision on 2 of 3 counts by 10 am yesterday and deliberated all day yesterday. Told the judge we were deadlocked yesterday and he told us to come back this morning. Spent all day deliberating again and announced at 11 we were deadlocked. At 12:15 they told us to go to lunch and come back in an hour. We listened to more tapes and talked some more and at 2 (came back from lunch at 1:15) he told us to go back and deliberate more. At 3 we said again we were deadlocked and we were dismissed until 8:30 Tuesday morning.
The process is interesting and exciting, but enough is enough. We have jurors threatening to not come back which will really cause problems.  I am tired. I come home from jury duty and then have my regular household chores (not getting done) and then spend 2 hours working  to stay caught up at work. Sigh.

Lori: The judicial system can be very trying at times. I guess that the only thing that I can tell you that might make you feel better is that you can at least be thankful that you aren't sitting on the jury for a trial like Michael Jackson or OJ Simpson. I don't believe that I would want to be one of the jurors that didn't come back. Afraid that they really might see how the judicial system works. Hopefully on Tues the judge will see that a verdict can't be reached and call a hung jury.

Relax and enjoy your weekend.

I can't imagine what I would do in a situation like that. I think I would be about ready to burst. You sound pretty calm about it all. Sorry it has been such an ordeal for you. Hugs MK
