Misdemeanor Crime News

After deliberating all morning, breaking for lunch, and then most of the afternoon, a jury found a lady guilty of DWI today. They even sent a note out shortly before 3:00 that they were deadlocked 4-2. The jury consisted of four middle aged women and two guys in their twenties. I never understand how you can have a doubt all day about someone's guilt, and that doubt not be a reasonable one. Which, by definition, means a vote of not guilty.
