3 The jury just asked their first questions of the day .. they want to know if they can reach verdicts on some of the charges .. but not all. The judge, Russell Healey, said the answer is yes. The second question .. they want to take a 30 minute break .. and the judge said the answer to that is also yes. They are trying to decide Dunn's guilt or innocence on 5 separate charges .. We now know they COULD be hung on at least one. These are the charges: First degree murder in the shooting death of Jordan Davis, Three counts of attempted murder for shooting at the other teens inside the car .. and shooting into an occupied vehicle. We're covering the verdict-watch from several angles. Vic Micolucci is taking a look at the question that the jury COULD be hung on at least one charge. Joy Purdy has an update on the Davis and Dunn families. Kumasi Aaron is following the demonstrations. And, Tarik Minor is examining other high profile trials and how gender can play a role in jury deliberations. We start with Vic. 3 3 3 VIC LIVE IN: We have 12 very different people that have to come to one big decision. A remember, a verdict must be unanimous...meaning every person agrees on every charge. If there's just one that doesn't...and won't budge...we could see a hung jury. 00-0521-27 07:39:15 "There's always the possibility that they will come back to the judge and say 'judge, we can reach a decision.'" Defense attorney Gene Nichols is not involved in this case but says he has defended clients where the jurors just couldn't come to an agreement of if the defendant is guilty...or not. 07:39:48 "The jury will come back and tell the judge we cannot reach a decision. And when they do that the judge is going to send them back in and just say talk about your issues, go back and give it another try." Nichols says the process could go on for a little bit...until everyone understands that a unanimous vote is going to happen. 07:40:12 "if they finally come back again and all parties agree there's no reason to send them back. Then the judge will have to declare this a hung jury and everybody would have to go home to try this case another day." If that happens here, Nichols says it'd be expensive and time- consuming...because there would have to be a new trial, from start to finish. There'd have to be another round of jury selection, testimony and delibeartions.07:41:15 "It will be a long process. It will be this all over again." There are 5 charges against Michael Dunn...and according to research, the more charges against someone...the more likely it is that everyone won't agree.Remember, all 12 jurors must agree on all 5 charges... legal analyst Nichols says while it may seem tough...he still believes we'll see a verdict sooner or later. 07:41:35 "It's not very common to have a hung jury. At some point and time, jurors recognize they need to make a decision." 3 So far deliberations have gone longer than Casey Anthony and George Zimmerman...but remember, Zimmerman only had 6 people who had to agree, as compared to 12. 3 QUESTION: Vic .. our viewers have been asking .. the George Zimmerman trial had 6 jurors .. why does this trial have 12? Every day during the trial .. the Davis and Dunn families have been sitting in the courtroom .. watching and listening. No matter the outcome, the Davis family has lost a son and Dunn's life will be changed forever. Channel 4's Joy Purdy is joining us LIVE from outside the courthouse with more on both families. 3 3 3 03-0821-27 áááJordan's mom - Lucia McBathááá 43:35 Erica: Can you tell us what you're thinking walking in today? Lucia McBath: We're praying for a just verdict. Erica: What do you think about it taking so long this far? Lucia McBath: I don't know what to say, we're just praying for a just verdict 43:46áááJordan's dad - Ron Davisááá 42:49 Erica: Good morning Mr. Davis, what are you thinking heading into today? Ron Davis: Heart is heavy, heart is heavy Erica: What do you think about it taking so long to reach a verdict? Ron Davis: I want them to be thorough so I don't have any problem with that. It's good. It's a good thing for Jacksonville I think.Be thorough and be just. 43:06 3 3 Among the many people waiting for a verdict .. there are some who are holding signs while they wait. They're demonstrators right outside the courthouse .. who are trying to get a message across. Channel 4's Kumasi Aaron is joining us LIVE ..Kumasi, the demonstrators you've talked to .. what did they tell you? 3 They told me even though the jury is still out they are not discouraged.As you can see they are still here calling for Justice for Jordan Davis. And they plan to be here until there is a verdict.s 00-05 37-4456-1:03 1:14- 1:21TAKE NAT: "Chanting" With every chant these demonstratiors say they are closer to Justice for Jordan Davis. They've been here in front of the Duval County Courthouse trying to get that message across, as the jury decides the fate of Michael Dunn. TAKE NAT: 00:24:34-36 Hopefully today is going to be the day.Opio Sokoni has been here almost every day with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference of Jacksonville. He says through rain and chilly temperatures, they've had to remain vigilant to keep attention on the trial. Sometimes they're loud, other times quiet, but always aiming to be a voice for those unable to stand here. OPIO SOKONI/SOUTHERN CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE JACKSONVILLE 00:25:33-26:00 It's just a feel when we first start coming out it was a silent protest because Jordan Davis he was silenced by that bullet 42 that he received or those bullets that he received from Dunn. 45 Jacqueline Black is back with her daughters for the second day. She says not only is this a lesson about justice but speaking up for what they believe is right. JACQUELINE BLACK/DEMONSTRATOR 00:32:50-33:01 Loud music do they deserve to die because of loud music? Skittles am hoodies? No. That's what they are taking away from this. They can stand up they need to be heard. For Mary Dennis, she stands here to let Jordan Davis' family know they're not alone. MARY DENNIS/DEMON STRATOR 00:27:52-28:02 They lost a son. And we all look a it 55 everybody that has children right now they really put themselves in their places like okay this could have been my child. And as she holds this sign with Davis picture, she holds on to a moment with Davis' family that makes it all worthwhile. MARY DENNIS/DEMONSTRATOR 00:28:31-43 Yesterday I had the opportunity to show the sign Justice for Jordan and one of them looked at me and smiled so that made me feel so good it is so worth it being out here. 3 These demonstrators say even they do not agree with the jury's decision they do not plan to be violent one group told me they plan to practice civil disobedience.So far we haven't seen anyone out here demonstrating in favor of Michael Dunn, or even gun rights. 3 In the absence of a verdict .. as you heard earlier .. it is hard to resist speculating about what is going on with this jury .. behind closed doors. We've been looking back at some other widely publicized trials to see how long it took for a verdict to be reached. For instance ..an ALL WOMEN jury deliberated for 16 hours to find George Zimmerman not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The jury in the trial of Casey Anthony returned a not guilty verdict in just 10 hours. Channel 4's Tarik Minor joins us now with some insight into how the length of deliberations, and perhaps the gender of jurors can play a role in a final verdict. 3 3 Jury expert says it's always easier for people of the same gender or race to talk to each other, and reach an opinion. In this case, there are 4 white women, 4 white males, 2 black females, an asian woman and 1 hispanic male. The experts say theres no ryhme or reason as to what they may be discussing, and there no telling what more than 20 hours of deliberating really means. 3 If your look to America's most high profile trials, you'll find that there IS NO REAL FORMULA, that could provide insight into what jurors are thinking behind closed doors in the Michael Dunn trial.In the highly publicized case of Jerry Sandusky, who was accused of sexual crimes against children, it took jurors more than 2 days to determine the 70 year olds guilt.In the case of Scott Peterson who was convicted of killing his wife and unborn child in California, the jury deliberated for 7 days, finding Peterson guilty, he'd would later be sentenced to the death penalty.In OJ Simpsons murder trial, the jury deliberated for less than four hours - finding Simpson innocent of murder of the wife Nicole Simpson, and friend Ronald Goldman.You may recall the Menendez brothers trial, where both brothers were accused of killing their parents, it took a jury a long four days to find both men guilty of murder.When it comes to gender, studies reveal women are more compassionate than men in most criminal cases, but generally speaking studies reveal women are ruthless when it comes to sex crimes.As for men, the jury experts say they tend to be harder on defendants who they believe are guilty or lying. 3 As for men, the jury experts say they tend to be harder on defendants who they believe are guilty or lying.
