Dinner Comes, Still No Sign of a Verdict

The jury remains in deliberation, closing in on its 13th hour of trying to decide the fate of state Rep. Scott Jensen and former legislative aide Sherry Schultz.

Around 7 p.m., the jurors ordered dinner from The Esquire, a restaurant on Sherman Avenue in Madison.

In an impromptu elevator encounter, Judge Steven Ebert said he's willing to let the jurors go as late as they like, adding that he's had juries deliberate on a case until 5 in the morning.

If necessary, the jury can continue deliberations through the weekend, including Sunday, he said.
