Jury Watch begins

I don't think anyone expected the Jury to make a decision last night, we also knew that Judge Thomas Osowik had previously made it clear that he does not allow juries to go past 8:00 p.m. while in deliberation.

So far we know the Jury has requested the witness list and a DVD player, it is assumed so that they can watch Father Robinson's two hour interrogation session with Toledo police. The Jury has been reported as consisting of 7 women and 4 men.

David Yonke has his impressions of yesterday from the Toledo Blade.

13ABC has their report on yesterday; WTOL has theirs; NBC24 has a short report and Fox 36 also has a brief summary. Merle was on last night at ten but that video is not yet on their website.

Where did the prosecution's "priest upset with career" motive come from? I don't recall anything along those lines previously.

At the very beginning of the trial, one of the Sisters commented that Father Robinson had stated he wanted to be a priest in the military. My guess would be they are trying to take those few statements as some proof he was unhappy with his career.

Which really isn't logical to me anyway, because he stayed in the priesthood and in Toledo.

Well, it appears that I was wrong.

Apparently, the Jury found Father Robinson guilty at ~ 11:30 this morning.

Yep, I just posted above, I don't think they gave it much deliberation but? That's the verdict so barring an appeal? It is over.
