But isn't it a little unusual for a judge to lecture a jury about changing their minds to avoid a deadlock just 90 minutes into deliberations?
I haven't followed the trial, either. It appears there is some doubt present. I think the judge probably crossed a line telling the jury not to be deadlocked. If there is enough there to be a hung jury, then that's the way the justice system will play itself out.
