Helio Update

UPDATE 4:47: Deliberation has ended for the day, after an interesting last couple of hours. After the Jury asked for clarification on 3 issues Judge Donald Graham said "The questions you have presented are difficult for us to respond to." Graham then gave a partial response to the question and told the Jury that they must decide on there own.

UPDATE 4:33:
Cavin reports that Helio's defense is asking for a mistrial, this is getting crazier and crazier.

Considering some of the jurors actually fell asleep during the trial, I could actually see this going through, maybe. But what would it mean for his racing career?

UPDATE 1:02:
The Jury has once again asked the judge for clarification on the offshore bank account in Panama. Judge Donald Graham is expected to answer the questions this afternoon.


The Jury has begun it's 3rd day of deliberation, after a fairly active session yesterday.

Robin Miller reported that one of the 12 members of the Jury showed up late yesterday, delaying the beginning of the2nd day of deliberation.

Later in the day they asked to see transcripts from 2 lawyers from New York that testified on behalf of the prosecution, the request was granted shortly there after.

The verdict could come anytime, stay tuned.....
