Complexities may deadlock Blagojevich jurors - Yahoo! News
Wouldn't it be something if after all this, the jury could not reach a verdict?ap 3:30 AM-Jurors who have spent the last 11 days deliberating in the corruption trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich have been able to listen to more than 100 excerpts of wiretap tapes, look through any notes they took during testimony and refer to some 120 pages of jury instructions.
All of that, though, may not have been enough to prevent them from becoming deadlocked.
Judge James Zagel asked attorneys to come to court Thurdsday in hopes of getting clarity about a jurors' note the day before hinting there's disagreement about at least some counts. In response to the note — which didn't say what charges jurors might be bogged down on — Zagel responded: "I am not sure the state of your deliberations and need clarification."
