    Being cautious to limit the grounds for appeal is an excellent plan.

    Imo, what will weigh the heaviest on each juror for the rest of THEIR lives is knowing the 4 murdered victims wound up in shattered pieces including two tiny little boys.

    Imo

    hmm, an hour and a half is what the state asked the notice be.

    So if they do reach a verdict tomorrow it's the judge's day off again and will be read Monday, presumably. :rolleyes:

    Why should the end be any different than every other point in this trial? :oops: It's exasperating.

    He seemed like a wounded puppy to me.
    Devastated that he lost his case.
    Started out fairly well then basically blamed it on the PT and the jurors for buying into what they presented.
    He mentioned having lost them in his argument.They shut down. But said a few listened. My take is that some jurors listened and responded respectfully but didn't buy any of it.

    Well that means they have to drag the convicted quadruple murder from the jail to the courthouse. Too bad so sad

    There won't ever be a true Death Sentence because California isn't ever going to reenact the death Penalty again.

    But if he gets placed on pretend Death Row, he might be better off, strategically. He gets one automatic paid appeal, and he gets segregated, protected living quarters, as opposed to being a vulnerable target.

    I’m not sure, but I think DP appeals are tax-payer funded, so maybe there’s an advantage in that sense? He’s unlikely to ever be executed.

    I wonder if that means they're close to a verdict? To come in at 8:30 on Friday? Hmmm. Maybe they're coming in that early to make sure everyone that needs to be there will have time to get there. Then they can be done with it. Wouldn't that be nice.

    MOO

    Yes I am. :) I think katydid23 in post #895 read my mind. I'm wondering if they actually want DP.

    That would make sense. I am sure they are ready to be done with it. I can't imagine them coming in on a Friday for an hour and a half deliberation, if they knew they were many hours away from a consensus.

    It's Friday. They probably want to leave early to avoid Friday traffic.
