Attorneys Rule Out Plea Deal

With the case against GOP Rep. Scott Jensen and former legislative staffer Sherry Schultz so close to getting to the jury, is there still a chance a deal could be cut?

The attorneys indicated today there is little or no chance.

"Absolutely not," said Jensen attorney Stephen Meyer. "Do you think we would have gone through three weeks of this?"

Morgan said there have been no settlement talks, and he didn't expect to be contacted by prosecutors before the case is left to the jury tomorrow.

Assistant AG Roy Korte, the co-prosecutor in the case, said it wouldn't be appropriate for him to comment on whether settlement talks have been going on during the trial.
