    I have always wondered what goes on when a deliberation has to start over. I'm sure they take a vote, to gauge the new person's thinking. But I wonder if there's a lot of pressure on the new person to fit themselves into the group's thinking (saying groupthink is too strong, but it's where my mind goes)...in order to return to where they left off in deliberating.

    I wish she hadn't said anything but I believe her. I'm glad the juror was removed. Clearly the juror was the one who felt he had done something wrong since he felt the need to lie about the interaction. So I'm also glad this happened to get him out of the jury room.

    I wonder if they actually start completely over. Do they just fill in the new juror where they are at in the deliberations. I guess it would depend on the new juror and how they feel about the case. imo

    That's the question, isnt it? If the new juror goes in there with no decision in mind, they have to spend a lot of time getting them up to speed on what has already been discussed. But I don't think they would bother to re-vote on each count, because that's what starting over would entail. Human nature is to use shortcuts when possible, and if the previous vote was unanimous, and the new guy agrees, yeah, move on to the next thing...

    That's fine, but she lied to the judge yesterday too.

    They are going to be put into a local hotel. They can continue deliberating past 5 pm if they wish. Will be getting chick-fil-a for their meal.
    No phones back until deliberations are finished.

    Mull tried to renew her motion for mistrial and was denied again. This was because of a facebook posting by a juror, but turns out it had nothing to do with the case.

    Sounds like the defense has been scouring social media.

    Tweets from L&C

    Cathy Russon (@cathyrusson) | Twitter

    Defense moves for a mistrial again. A juror has posted on their Facebook page. The post doesn't appear to be related to the case but defense says staying off of social media was judge's order.

    The judge says juror didn't violate any order. His order is to avoid reading, discussing anything about the case as it relates to social media. Judge denies motion for mistrial. Bringing jury in now to discuss schedule.

    The juror had updated their profile pic on FB. Jury is now sequestered. If no verdict tonight they will go to a hotel. The judge sent them back into the jury room and told them to send out a note if they want dinner brought in or done for the evening.

    That sequestration sounds like business. I like that.

    Yeah, we knew she lied because Cathy tweeted about it yesterday before the reporter was called before the judge where she and the juror lied. I guess Mull found out what really happened last night and then brought it up again this morning.

    Judge was very strict - they sent a note asking if they could have their phones back to make calls to their families and he said no.

    I can't see how they're going to get fresh clothes for tomorrow, and overnight bags. Maybe they had to sort that out earlier.

    This deliberation is making me nervous. A child with internal injuries that causes death should be a slam dunk against the people whom she was in custody of.
