Penalty Phase of Laura Hall Trial

Friday, the lawyers on both sides told Judge Flowers they expected to need about 30 minutes (for each side) to present testimony in the penalty phase. So I guess that means the jury will start deliberating on their recommended sentence a little after 10 tomorrow morning.

I'll be there (and maybe tomorrow will be my last parking meter ticket for a long time.) I wonder who will testify tomorrow? I hope the jury will reach a sentencing decision more quickly than they did during the guilt phase... If the deliberations take awhile, I'll try to borrow one of the "real" reporters' computers to do a quick update post here. Otherwise, I'll post when it's all over.
