Everyone is guessing at this point. I suspect the jury is enjoying this aspect of the trial as they are somewhat in charge now as opposed to being caged animals shuffled in and out of the courtroom. I think they wanted one more weekend of calmness before the media is unchained upon them.
We're on overtime now. Expect a verdict early next week. Questions to the judge at this point would be a potential sign of indecision and possible hung jury. Judge Edmunds is not hearing that talk. She will babysit them to the nth degree before giving up all these months. "You can't sit there for five months and have no idea. Decide yes or no."
PS> Look for Bernard to have a coronary in court if he's found guilty. Expletives will flow from all three defendants.
