Spears Jury Leaves For Weekend Without Verdict
The jury in Britney Spears' misdemeanor driving-without-a-valid-license trial has left for the weekend without reaching a verdict.The jury in Britney Spears' misdemeanor driving-without-a-valid-license trial has left for the weekend without reaching a verdict.
Los Angeles jurors left late this afternoon (Oct. 17) after deliberating for a little more than two hours. The eight women and four men received the case after prosecutors and defense attorneys made their final arguments.
Spears hit a parked car last year while driving in California on her Louisiana license. Her attorney says she didn't meet the state's residency requirements and was within the law.
But prosecutors say the 26-year-old needed a license because she was married, had two children and filed for divorce in Los Angeles -- and was ostensibly a California resident.
Spears did not attend any of the two-day trial.
