Partial Verdict in Helio Castroneves case

The jury has reached a verdict on all counts as to the lawyer, Alan Miller. That verdict form has been placed in a sealed envelope. The jury has also reached verdicts on 3 counts as to Helio Castroneves and 2 counts as to his sister. The jury has been told to continue deliberating on the other 5 and 6 counts, respectively. Judge Graham gave the infamous "Allen charge" to the jury, otherwise known as the dynamite charge. More to come soon, I bet...

I'll book your bet. Just type it in here, and I will cover you. Up to $100.00. You pick the verdict and I'll go the other way.

I bet the lawyer is acquitted on all counts and the partial verdicts are also not guilty.

I bet the lawyer is convicted, the others go free.

I am amused that that someone is calling him/herself “Fake Real Anonymous”

bet is on. Why would there be an acquittal on some counts but they are still deliberating. My experience is that when juries are super careful, they convict on certain counts and continue viewing other counts. Acquittals come in waves- usually when you get one or two the damn breaks and the case is over.

There are some guilty verdicts here unfortunately and I hope I am wrong or I'll have to get that money back I sent to the Caymans two days ago,

I'm booking Markus's bet. He can't pick em as good as he can try em. However, upon further thought, I now believe the lawyer was acquitted. I think there are mixed counts for the others.
