La Bamba and owner guilty
Here's the Herald article. Judge Lenard must be breathing a small sigh of relief that she at least got a verdict on the two lead defendants in the case. The jury was out over two weeks and she was in the middle of starting trial #3 in Liberty City 7. But there weren't verdicts across the board -- the jury hung on two of the defendants, after lengthy and heated deliberations. Apparently the jury foreman resigned as foreman during the deliberations... What's in the water in that jury room? Will the government retry the two hung defendants?
