''It is your duty to agree upon a verdict if you can do so."

That was Judge Lenard today to the Liberty City 7 jury. Apparently they sent another note today saying that they were still deadlocked. Judge Lenard read the "Allen charge" sometimes known as the dynamite charge... Defense lawyers hate this jury instruction because it typically leads juries to compromise.

Federal prisoners currently must do 85% of their time. Is there a separate gain time provision where they receive so many days of credit per month?

Wonder if the government will now prosecute them for conspiracy to defraud the federal government.

Trying to get some cash from the informant.

Gee, are the feds going to use that guy again?
