Vanessa Coleman Trial – Day 8

05/12/2010

UPDATED! 11:43

UPDATED! 3:15

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…

Update 1

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.

Update 2

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.

    Well, I think the jury has already decided the big charges. I hope that the jury understands the concept of “criminal responsibility.” Little Miss ‘Nessa is far from innocent from any wrongdoing. IMO

    Thanks. Sorry I live in Europe and forgot about time difference. Thank you for your efforts. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the penalty will be harsh.

    Thanks Mike!

    My expectation is we will see a verdict late today or tomorrow morning. The charges are numerous, so a lot for the Jury to consider, but since they are from Nashville – parts of which have had severe flooding – I’m sure they want to go home. That’s not to say they they will rush through deliberations.

    Actually Mike, the Jury was mostly white…it was not racial, it was just a Jury who didn’t understand the charges and a shameful example of justice.
