BREAKING: Deadlocked Escobar jury, citing progress in deliberations, wants a "good night's sleep," to return tomorrow
Query: We think this is day five of deliberations. What's your personal record and what's the REGJB record? This case has to be close.
Monday started off with a bang on Mr. Markus's blog with two posts: one dealing with the 9th circuit's reversal of a a death penalty conviction of a woman based solely on the word of a discredited detective that she confessed to him, and the second on the US Supreme Court's grant of cert (latin for "sure, why not, we'll consider your case") in a South Florida case involving the federal forfeiture statute.
You can peruse all the action here.
We saw some news report over the weekend (probably on MSNBC) about the trend in states to outlaw the death penalty. At some point it will just be Florida and Texas and Alabama and Mississippi. Mitigation y'all?
@Davidovalle305 tweeting all the latest in Escobar/Estefan jury. We'll be the second to let you know if and when there is a verdict.
See You In Court.
