Will that be before or after they fire the foreman and dismiss a couple more jurors?

Any chance this story can go to where it belongs, irrelevancy, after this? I'm fairly certain FOX has spent more hours on Peterson than on 9/11 at this point.

Hacking, Blake, Jackson, Kobe civil trial, and the Napa beauty queen slashed to death with her roommate.

She has a full schedule

I am getting ready for Scott Peterson to announce the following:

"I always had faith in the American justice system. And I can guarantee you that I will spend the rest of my life looking for the real killer."

That's bad. Replace two jurors and come back with a verdict that fast?

Sounds like not guilty.

Not guilty. The jury was at least hung with all commotion.

While I think he did it (80% chance), the 20% part of me had doubt.

That would qualify as a reasonable doubt.

I don't see how they could reconvene the jury with three new people, start over, and reach a unanimous verdict in a day.

If it goes against Scott, bet on an appeal within 30 seconds of the announcement.

Just my opinion - The 2 previous juries were probably having a hard time convicting Scaught due to the time they were in session. This quick of a decision probably means that they have convicted him. Almost certainly the appeal will be based on the fact that the jurors kept getting fired.

Also, pinging my evil twin.

I've got to believe that the jurors dismissed were the ones holding up for not guilty. so I vote GUILTY.

then again, this is california, where OJ Simpson plays golf three times per week.

Anything more specific? Did the alert say VERDICT or just some sort of announcement? Yesterday I thought this was headed for a hung jury.

Should we call 911 because obviously someone is holding a gun to your head and forcing you to post.

Tradesport does not have it. They do have Michael Jackson guilty of lewd acts as 60% guilty.

I don't know how to do odds. If we're going to post our predictions, I will optimistically say "guilty", but am wise enough to expect just about anything.

IF he's found guilty, will the conviction hold up on appeal? Personally, I have my doubts.

Exactly. Whatever this 13- or 14- or 15-member jury decides will not be accepted by anyone.

Hopefully, they'll vote guilty, but I'm not placing any bets. At least then, there'd be an appeal and another trial. If Scott goes free, can the State file for a mistrial?

In my opinion they never proved absolutely that he murdered her. Therefore, the death penalty shouldn't be on the table, imho.

But there's a chain of circumstantial evidence that says Peterson PROBABLY killed her. The defense offered no strong alternative....a remotely possible one.

I think I would vote to convict him.

But...I think they'll come back as not guilty.

I think that Peterson is guilty as sin, but I can't predict a California jury.

I'll bet $0.001 (one tenth of a penny) that the jury finds him guilty :-)

Guilty. No way they let this guy walk. Especially since the judge bounced the jurors leaning not guilty. Thank god this thing is over.
