WE ARE WAITING FOR A VERDICT
 
The jury deliberated for an hour and a half before going to lunch for an hour an a half.  They are now back at deliberating.

It is anyone's guess what is happening.  I can tell you lawyers have a million theories as to what this means. 

So we wait.
 
JURY COMES BACK WITH GUILTY VERDICT

Based on information I have received from the courthouse a Motion for New Trial based on Jury Misconduct will be filed.  An appeal will be taken.  More likely than not Chambers will remain free pending the Motion for New Trial and Appeal.

This does not bode well for his election.

While I find no evidence of intentional conduct, the arrest of Tony Yzaguirre probably weighed on the minds of some jurors who just want the corruption to end.  Can you blame them?

My policy is to respect the findings of the jury until a judge finds otherwise.

The jury misconduct motion should be interesting.  Such in the Villalobos case technology is causing problems with the jurors.  The Texas Supreme Court and Court of Criminal Appeals need to set out some standards on this issue to help guide the trial judges.

SENTENCING IS SET FOR THE 28TH OF JANUARY

Now he can see where he went wrong from in Jail. He should be glad this was not federal. Now he can get off with a slap on his wrists.

The judge should confiscate the cell phones of the Jurors, if there was any one guilty of a crime, they should be sent to jail for 3 months, this would send out the correct message.
