Trial, Day 5

The jury has begun deliberations! The defense rested early in the day, closing arguments were made by both attorneys, and the final instructions given to the jury, who promptly took a lunch break, it being close to 1:00 by then. Towards the end of the day, the jury passed a note requesting to review the testimony of one of the fingerprint witnesses. Given the lateness of the hour, the judge promised that for first thing tomorrow morning, and dismissed the jury for the evening.

The evidential review will probably take about an hour tomorrow morning, and they will obviously want to discuss it afterwards, so there will almost certainly not be a decision before mid-morning at the very earliest. Of course, no one knows how long it will really go tomorrow or even beyond.
