UPDATE Monday, 9:30 pm, PT.
Sprocket here. I'm quite tired. I didn't get home until 7:30 pm. I stayed in downtown LA and fabric shopped until Mr. Sprocket got off from jury duty and could pick me up. Came home, had dinner and then started writing. I'll finish writing up my notes on today's proceedings tomorrow, with a new entry. Outside the courthouse on the Temple Street plaza after the foreman gave an interview to the press, several jurors came over to Sarah, the victim's mother, to give her their condolences. At least one of the jurors was openly sobbing while hugging her.
I just got a call from Sprocket. The news of a verdict was a miscommunication with the jury. There has been another mistrial. The final vote was 6 for 2nd degree and 6 for manslaughter. Sprocket will fill in the details when she gets home from court.
A verdict has been reached in the retrial of Cameron Brown for alleged murder of his four-year-old daughter, Lauren.
The verdict will be read at 1:30 pm in Department 107.
I won't have my laptop with me, but I will try to arrange an update as soon as possible.
