Jury Deliberations Continue In Police Inspector Daniel Castro’s Trial
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The jury considering the corruption case against former Philadelphia police Inspector Daniel Castro is having trouble reaching a unanimous verdict on some counts, but they will deliberate again Wednesday morning.
Defendant Daniel Castro is charged with 10 criminal counts, including counts of extortion, bribery, honest services fraud and lying to authorities, and the jury has told the judge it has not been able to reach unanimous verdicts on some counts.
It did not indicate which counts or how many counts, remain open or what verdicts, if any, it has reached.
The note came late Tuesday afternoon after just about one full day of deliberations. The judge dismissed jurors for the day, but told them to resume deliberations, to continue to try to reach unanimous verdicts on all counts when court resumes.
