Judge Perry gave her the max he could. Plus $1000.00 fine for each count. So she walks out the door with time served and paying $4000.00. The prosecution has asked for the state to be reimbursed for investigative charges which could be up in the thousands but the Judge did not rule on that yet.

What a three ring circus that family was, and the whole trial.
I completely agree with you as to the family and dynamics. Im torn on profiting from jury duty - I do think there should be parameters, but am not sure I would support a complete ban - after all its their story to tell.

I think a new law should be that jurors cannot profit from civic duty. One has been offered $50,000 for an appearance on a show. I don't know if they are waiting for more.
This verdict was so out of line , I even gave it a thought that some on this jury may have had some motivation to give a controversial verdict making them high profile to tell their story on the whys of their verdict. Even a book could pan out . Originally in the first talks the initial verdicts of this jury was 6 for manslaughter, 2 for murder and the rest not guilty. 8 to 4 for some jail time went to no jail time.

I personally think she is still getting out Wed. it's a ploy to misguide the public as to when she really gets out. Her safety is in jeopardy and the judge knows this. Just my opinion.

I don't see an issue with jurors profiting from selling their story to the highest bidder. Capitalism at it's finest!

I'd love to know how on Earth they went from 2 thinking "murder" to all 12 voting "not guilty" in the very small amount of time they took to deliberate!

They wanted to go home ... sleep in their own beds ... soak in their own bathtubs ... chill out in front of their own TVs ... run through their own home nekked ... and one departed on a trip to Europe on July 7.

I served on a jury that wanted to go home too. Not sequestered but we deliberated all day and into late night hours. We sent notes to the judge, we argued with heated battles. Five of us held firm on our verdict (including me.) I wasn't about to budge if we harelipped the whole county and justice system with a hung jury. Toward the end of week two I witnessed a true picture of what goes on behind closed doors.

A jury of your own peers can be a scary thing.

Simply put, bullies win. The rest just cave into the meanest, just to get away from the ferocious stand of the bully. I am not into confrontation, so I know I would vote anything to get away.

Is it shame that is keeping these jurors so quiet? If they felt they did the right thing, why not be defiant in their rightousness of their verdict?!

I would hide under the biggest rock forever if I had been a part of that group. And never mention it.
