Jury reports it is making 'progress'
Jurors in Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon's theft and embezzlement trial are heading into a fourth day of deliberations today but reported Monday that they were making "progress."
A note delivered about 4:30 p.m. Monday from the jury forewoman asked Judge Dennis M. Sweeney to dismiss jurors for the day but also said, "We are making progress."
"My suggestion is that we follow the jury's lead," Sweeney said, and instructed the nine women and three men to return at 9 a.m. today. They have been in deliberations about 18 hours.
Walking out of the courtroom at the end of the day, State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh said he could not speculate on what the length of deliberations meant.
"I've been around long enough not to hazard to guess what happens in the jury room," he said.
