The jury at Todd McNair’s trial told the judge they are deadlocked, 8-4. You need 9 votes to reach a verdict.
The jury did not say which way it was leaning. The judge asked them to resume deliberations tomorrow.
“I got the impression there was more than general disagreement,” Judge Frederick Shaller said. “I would like to give it the best shot possible.”
How will the USC Internet media bask in the reflected glow of McNair’s case if a decision is not reached?
