Case Goes to the Jury

Closing arguments in the case against Rep. Scott Jensen and former legislative staffer Sherry Schultz have ended, wrapping up shortly before 6 p.m.

After Judge Steven Ebert gave some final instructions, the jury was released to deliberate. Three men from the nine woman, six man jury were culled out before deliberations began.

Jurors are scheduled to meet for roughly an hour before Ebert will check in with them to ask about their progress. At that point, if they haven't reached a verdict, he'll leave it up to jurors to decide whether to ccontinue deliberations tonight or start fresh in the morning.
