The Judge in both cases asked us to keep deliberating. It happens all the time. At some point they will simply remain deadlocked on the verdict and the court will move on.
Paul Manafort was found guilty of five tax fraud charges, one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts, and two counts of bank fraud.
The other 10 charges were declared a mistrial.
so mistrial on 10 counts but 8 still in play guess were close to a conclusion of the case now
Paul Manafort, Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, has been found guilty on five counts of tax fraud, one count of failing to disclose his foreign bank accounts and two counts of bank fraud. The jury is unable to reach consensus on 10 of the 18 counts in the bank fraud trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Judge T.S. Ellis III will declare a mistrial on 10 unresolved counts but will accept the jury's verdict on the remaining eight counts. Ellis decided there is "manifest necessity" to proceed. Manafort faced 18 counts — five counts related to false income tax returns, four counts of failing to file foreign bank account reports, four counts of bank fraud and five counts of bank fraud conspiracy. The government alleges Manafort hid tens of millions of dollars in income and falsified records to enrich himself and live a life of luxury. The jury — composed of six men and six women — began deliberations Thursday morning, after a little more than two weeks at trial. The government had recommended between eight and 10 years in prison if he's found guilty of the charges against him.
