VOTE IN THE POLL TO THE RIGHT
DAY 7: 12/17/09
The jury in the trial for Bill White has been sent home to allow the attorney's the rest of the day for working on closing arguments and legal instructions that will be read to the jury when they return at 9:00 tomorrow morning.
In what has become the norm in trials against high-profile neo-Nazi's, the defense filed a motion to dismiss the charges after the prosecution presented its case. Judge James Turk had refused before the trial, reserving the right to do so after hearing the prosecutions evidence. He, once again, refused to dismiss, and is sending the case to the jury.
In what has also become the questionable and curious norm of courtroom proceedings in trials of this nature, the defense rested presenting no evidence, testimony, or witnesses. One must wonder at the wisdom of such a move.
When the jury returns tomorrow they will be given their instructions and sent to deliberate with only the testimony against William White to consider.
