News, Jury at stalemate in Danny Masterson rape trial; deliberations to resume after Thanksgiving : detailed suggestions and opinions about Jury at stalemate in Danny Masterson rape trial; deliberations to resume after Thanksgiving .
After three days of deliberating behind closed doors, jurors in the Danny Masterson rape trial have been unable to reach a unanimous decision on any of the three counts filed against the actor.
Despite the stalemate, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Charlaine Olmedo told the jury Friday to keep at it, ensuring that the weeks-long trial of the “That ’70s Show” actor would continue past the Thanksgiving break.
Jury deliberations are secret, but the group’s note to the judge offered a rare glimpse into their mindset and suggested that the 12-member panel could end up as a hung jury in the high-profile rape case.
In her note to jurors, Olmedo informed members they have been “deliberating for an insufficient amount of time” to declare being deadlocked.
