Turns out the person they were trying ended up pleading to the charge we would have found them guilty of anyway. (I think that was like a yr and a half or longer, later)
It was stressful for everyone. I hated not coming to a consensus and having others go thru it all over again.

I don't know about your county. The county I reside in if you are 70 or older you don't even have to show up. Starting the first of next year I get to go back in the jury pool thanks to California allowing ex- felons to sit on juries now. They call me I will get the boot fast, three times to prison and many years of doing legal research for a appellate program should exclude me real fast. They sit me on a jury they are looking at a hung jury real fast
Be a friend to everyone,never know when you may need their help
