It's been an interesting day in the Barry Bonds trial. After days of deliberation, an announcement came out that the jury had reached a verdict. This set a whole avalanche of things in motion, what with the end suddenly coming into view.
Then the court amended its statement and said a verdict had not been reached. Oh, the embarrassment!
And more, the jury then said that it had a verdict on one count, but not for the rest. The foreman said that further deliberation would be of no use. So after some discussion, the court has agreed to hear the verdict on the one count, and declare a mistrial on the rest, on account of a deadlock.
A mistrial, of course, meaning we may very well get to do this all over again. But at least we get to hear the one verdict!
