Vanessa Coleman Trial – Day 8
The Jury begins deliberations at 9:00 a.m.
What hanging out with the wrong people can do to you!
Some good wrap-ups from yesterday…
11:30 am Everyone called to the court!
11:34 Jury enters the courtroom
Harry is the foreman
“Criminal responsibility” is mentioned throughout the charges and seems to need definition/explanation.
The answer is in the language on page 7, which Judge Baumgartner read to the jury.
The jury seems satisfied and the Judge sends them back to their lunch.
3:00 p.m. The Christian and Newsom families just arrived in court!
3:09 p.m Judge takes the bench
The families have been brought in for a preview of their impact statements if they are needed!
Judge Baumgartner will probably approve them as we have been here before and the families already know what the Judge will allow to be said.
Every family member is crying, as am I.
Vanessa is totally detached and unemotional.
