Jurors Deadlocked in Police Misconduct Trial

September 12, 2003|From Staff and Wire Reports

Jurors deliberating in the misconduct trial of three former Oakland police officers were ordered to resume their discussions Thursday after telling a judge they were deadlocked on many charges.

The jury, which has been deliberating since May 29, filed out of the courtroom grim-faced after Judge Leo Dorado's order. At least one juror was crying.

Although jurors are forbidden to talk about the case, notes to the judge have indicated that discussions about the fate of the officers have been, at times, contentious.
