キム・ポッターの陪審員は潜在的なデッドロックを示しています, asks judge what happens 'if a jury cannot reach consensus'

Judge Regina Chu read the jury’s question for the court, “陪審員が合意に達することができない場合, どのくらいの期間、どのような手順を踏むべきかについてのガイダンスは何ですか?”

The judge responded by reading part of the instructions that were given to the jury on Monday.

You should decide the case for yourself but only after you should have discussed the case with your fellow jurors and have carefully considered their views,” Judge Chu said.

You should not hesitate to re-examine your views and change your opinion if you become convinced they are erroneous, but you should not surrender your honest opinion simply because other jurors disagree, or merely to reach a verdict.

Potter’s defense attorneys objected to Judge Chu rereading the jury instructions, arguing that it would emphasize that aspect of the instructions over everything else. The judge overruled the objection.

The prosecution called Potter’s actions ablunder of epic proportionsduring closing arguments.

This was not putting the wrong date on a check. This was not entering the wrong password somewhere. This was a colossal screw-up,” Prosecutor Erin Eldridge told the jury. “It was precisely the thing she had been warned about for years, and she was trained to prevent it. It was irreversible and it was fatal.

Potter’s attorneys placed the blame on Wright for trying to get away from officers as they arrested him on an outstanding weapons charge.

Daunte Wright caused his own death, 残念ながら,” defense attorney Earl Gray said. “In the walk of life, nobody’s perfect. Everybody makes mistakes… My gosh, a mistake is not a crime. It just isn’t in our freedom-loving country.

The jury also asked the judge Tuesday if they could remove zip ties so that they can hold Potter’s gun. Potter’s attorneys objected, but the judge granted the jury’s request.
