Attorney expects jury deadlock on some charges

A defense attorney in Alabama's gambling corruption trial says she expects another note from the jury saying it is deadlocked on some charges.

The jury sent the judge a note late Tuesday afternoon saying it had reached a unanimous decision on some counts but felt it could never reach agreement on other counts.

The judge directed the jury to resume deliberations Wednesday morning.

Attorney Susan James predicted that the jury will send the judge a note at some point Wednesday that will be similar to Tuesday's note.

She also predicted that the jury won't change its position no matter how many times the judge says to keep deliberating.

James represents Country Crossing casino spokesman Jay Walker.
