Judge is reminding alternates to continue taking their work seriously, because they're only one dismissal away from being on the deliberating team
Deliberating jurors and alternates cannot talk to each other about the case still
In fact, neither group can discuss the case any further at this point, or with the other group
Evidence is going to be removed from the deliberation room and put in storage
Statement from Gov. Hickenlooper on today's verdict in the theater shooting trial:
"This has been an emotional and difficult time for the victims, their families, loved ones and friends. My hope is that this step brings some peace to each of them, and begins the healing process for all of Colorado. We have great respect for the work of the jury and are so grateful for their service and commitment."
Statement from Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan
“This trial has been emotional and difficult for all involved, as well as the entire Aurora community. So many people have served an incredibly important role in getting to this point in time. We appreciate and support the families and the victims for the courage and strength they have shown throughout this difficult process. Our thoughts are always with you.
We thank the first responders for their selfless service and for the testimony they provided in the interest of justice.
And finally, we thank the jurors for their thoughtful consideration and deliberation in this extremely trying case.
As a community, Aurora stands strong and we hope this is one more step in the healing process.”
