    jury begins deliberating at 836 Thursday morning on thomas sentence

    December 10, 2009 08:47:08 am

    No activity in the courtroom since I loaded it at 7:45 my time, so I'm not sure what, if anything, they said in court before the jury went to deliberate.

    They've already been deliberating for 50 minutes... I bet they have a sentence ready within another hour or two.

    I hear voices in the courtroom now, but I doubt it's meaningful.

    I'm listening also Muffet, but haven't heard anything. Do we all agree that GT will most likely receive LWOP?

    I haven't seen any tweets that there's a sentence, but the attorneys are seated in the courtroom...

    Yes. The Christians aren't there.

    Judge tells the attys that the 2 questions are:

    Do we need to fill out 4 sentencing forms?
    Do aggravating circumstances need to be read aloud at sentencing?

    He's about to bring them now.

    Juror explains that they want to know if they should fill out a form for each victim...
    Judge says yes, so it would be two forms for each charge - one for Chris, one for Channon...

    As for question 2, do aggravating circumstances need to be read aloud at sentencing, the answer is yes.

    I don't understand legal technicalities enough to read anything into those questions, unless finding aggravated circumstances means the DP.
