More for amusement I guess.

What do people think the jury will decide.

Discuss and deliberate yourselves perhaps?

According to Judge White.... you don't have much time :43

I picked Not Guilty... I can't get past "Reasonable Doubt".. especially with a life sentence involved.

I have no clue what they'll decide! I chose guilty because I think he is guilty.

I voted in the poll ... rushing. Voted the way I "thought" the jury will vote.
Not sure if that's how I should have voted.
Doesn't pass the smell test I don't think. Where there's smoke ... there is usually fire.
Both times. :14

K Joni :42

I am trying to evaluate just the evidence presented... as the Jury should...

So I have to say that I could not say that this was murder in the first place, and even if it was.... that Drew did it Beyond Reasonable doubt.

At least THIS jury are trying.. asking to review a lot of evidence and putting some thought into it.

The infamous Pinellas Pinheads.. asked to review........ NOTHING!!!!

I think their deliberations were about how there next meal and trip home.

Famous trials: How long jurors deliberated
By HLNtv.com Staff
updated 12:11 PM EDT, Fri November 04, 2011

The minute a case is given to a jury, speculation begins. One hot topic is always how long it will take the jury to reach a verdict. And the speculation really heats up in that window between word that a verdict's been reached and when it's read in court.

In the Conrad Murray case, the media have been notified there will be a two hour window between the time the jury reaches a verdict and the announcement of that verdict.

Some people would say a short deliberation time means a guilty verdict and a longer deliberation means the jury, or at least one juror, thinks the defendant is not guilty. But take a look at how long it took jurors to decide these cases:

  • Casey Anthony: was acquitted of first-degree murder in the death of her two-year-old daughter, Caylee. The jury deliberated ten hours and 40 minutes

  • O.J. Simpson: In 1995, was acquitted of two counts of murder in the deaths of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. Jurors deliberated for less than four hours.

  • Phil Spector: Jurors from the second Phil Spector trial deliberated for 30 hours and convicted him of second-degree murder in the death of Lana Clarkson.

  • Robert Blake: After 35 hours of deliberations, stretched out over nine days, jurors acquitted of first-degree murder in his wife's death.

  • Scott Peterson: was convicted of first-degree and second-degree murder for killing his wife and their unborn child. The jury deliberated for seven days.

  • Menendez brothers: After four days of deliberations, were convicted of two counts of first-degree murder for killing their parents.

  • Steven Hayes: was convicted of capital murder in the deaths of three members of the Petit family. The jury deliberated four hours.

It's funny that Stacy seems to have brought about this trial.
George Anthony (like Peterson), was a cop. And imagine, having a nurse on the scene too ... SINdy.
Lady Justice ... :45 :97
