Discussion in 'Caylee Anthony 2 years old' started by beach, Jul 4, 2011.
Does the jury remain sequestered after the verdict and before the penalty phase?
It was in May-around the 24th. My sil was invited.
So I watched the OJ Simpson case pretty much in the same way and felt beyond sickened and shocked by the verdict. I really think this part is mental torture. Can you imagine this being a part of your job on a regular basis?? (waiting on verdicts)
I attended a murder trial and the jury came back in 45 minutes too...and that included lunch. It is unusual but not unheard of. In this case I can't begin to make a guess, but I would not be surprised if it was relatively quick.
P.S. the verdict was guilty in the above case
Oh, ella, my heart goes out to you. I can't even begin to imagine what you went through, simply trying to protect your daughter. Prayers for you, friend. From what I have seen and read, I agree that LWOP is worse than death.
I pray that once all of this if over, the Anthony's are able to have a somewhat normal life. Say what you want, but Cindy & George appeared to be wonderful grandparents. Although no child will ever be able to replace Caylee, perhaps Lee can help fill the void left by giving them another grandchild. I can't imagine the emptiness of their home & hearts. Casey is a selfish witch who has singlehandedly destroyed the lives of everyone around her.
Would length of jury deliberations give the DT any grounds for appeal? Meaning would a quick verdict be bad in that sense?
I think that when the jury's instructions are finished that they will go to lunch and then to deliberate. I really believe that there will be a verdict today around 5pm. Keeping my fingers crossed and praying for justice for Caylee!
I hear that we will have 20-30 minutes notice but they must have more time to get her from her cell and dressed before they male official notice
I am going to run some errands I didn't get to do yesterday, since it took all day for the DT. I will die if I get a tweet that the verdict is in and I can't get to a TV. Surely they will give media (and me) time to get to court house.
You are most likely correct. She will say it was Baez however her father will never forgive her . He is done with her, He washed his hands of her right there in the court room. CA may buy it as she is her Mom... Lee I can not even fathom where he stands in all this mess...
"Even if you don't like the laws, you must use them."
No, whatever the jury decides and any time they choose, short or long time, have nothing to do with appellate issues. Appellate issues are legal mistakes made during Trial.
Sorry if this has been asked - I zoned out for a bit.
When they elect a foreman, they will have to have some inkling of who is and is not an alternate, right?
I know! We REALLY are. Did you ever think we would get here?!
I am overwhelmed today! God Bless this Jury!
Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury....
sends chills run down my spine
I think they'll eat while they deliberate
