Cheerful again

Jurors in the Al-Hussayen trial pushed past 4:45 this afternoon with their deliberations, going about 45 minutes longer than usual, and appeared mostly relaxed and cheerful as they left the courthouse today in several groups. That was a contrast to yesterday, when they reportedly were uncharacteristically morose as they departed from their day of deliberations.

The jury begins deliberating again in the morning. They must reach unanimous agreement on Sami Omar Al-Hussayen’s guilt or innocence on 14 charges – two of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, one of providing that support, seven of visa fraud and four of false statements.
