^^ that was said by an individual after the judge asked if a foreperson had been elected or not

Sounds like we may have a mistrial unless judge asks them to go back again. Uhhhhhh...

I have never seen THIS in all the trials I've followed.

They can't even figure out if they're unanimous or not? WTF!

Panola County ---> the new Pinellas County, perchance?

(apparently did not understand all 12 have to agree to find defendant guilty).

Been following quietly but I have to ask, has this ever happened before? I've never seen this happen in any trial before.

Judge rereading instruction 3c to jury regarding unanimous decision. Returns them to jury room.

I don't know if that's a good or a bad thing. Probably bad in this case since it is highly likely they understood none of Rawlette's testimony.

If they don't understand unanimous how are they to understand the evidence. This is a first in the many trials i have followed.

I've only watched 3 other trials in their entirety, so I can't say, but I sure have never heard of it happening.

Foreman tells jury that all 12 did not agree on a verdict. They are now being sent back into jury room #JessicaChambers

What????? I missed it!

He got the paper from the foreman and then asked, and all of you were agreed? One guy blurted out, "no, we didn't all agree!" (Like they had no clue they had to??)

I find that pretty disturbing

That's a very basic instruction
