The jury in the Senator Ted Stevens corruption trial has left for the day. (door closing noise)
They were supposed to leave at 4:45pm, but asked permission to leave early.
The jury returned to Sullivan’s court at 4:25 p.m. Sullivan said they had sent a note.
Paraphrasing, he said jurors wanted to leave early. “Kind of stressful right now – we need a minute of clarity right now.”
No problem, Sullivan said. “Of course I will let you go.”
What does this mean? I was expecting a request for more dry erase markers, or a question about an electrical invoice, or something else. But “Can we go early because we’re stressed out?” I didn’t see that one.
So, what do you think?
