Weinstein jury appears deadlocked on 2 counts

After four long days of deliberation, the 12 jurors tasked with deciding Harvey Weinstein’s fate indicated in a note to the judge that they may be deadlocked on the most serious charges in the disgraced producer’s rape trial.

On Friday, after spending the morning listening to Sopranos actress Annabella Sciorra’s testimony, the jurors sent a note to Manhattan Supreme Court Judge James Burke asking if they could “be hung” on the two counts of predatory sexual assault if they are “unanimous” on the other three charges against him: criminal act in the first degree, rape in the first degree, and rape in the third degree.

“We the jury request to understand whether we can be hung on [charges] 1 and/or 3 and unanimous on the other charges,” the note said.

After multiple private conversations with Burke, the defense stated they were willing to accept the verdict, but the prosecution said they wished for the jury to continue deliberating.
