We will have the verdict for you here as soon as it is read. Until then, there won't be a lot to report as the jury is deliberating.

Is there any idea on the time frame? How long does the jury have this morning?
by Simone at Friday, May 27, 2011 10:15:02

@Simone No idea on the time frame -- as long as it takes them to decide. They have all day.
by Kevin Clay/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 10:15:24

Do you expect a verdict today or could it even be longer?
by Kelley at Friday, May 27, 2011 10:23:11

@Kelley We don't know. Some take hours and some take days
by Kevin Clay/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 10:23:20

by Kelley at Friday, May 27, 2011 11:46:29

Are you sitting in the courtroom just waiting, or do you get notified if/when they're ready?
by Jeffrey at Friday, May 27, 2011 12:03:25

@Jeffrey We'll get notified when they are ready and Andy will go to the courtroom.
by Kevin Clay/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 12:03:41

Still no word. The jury has been deliberating for more than 5 hours now.
by Kevin Clay/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 13:38:29

We are hearing that a verdict has been reached. It has not yet been announced what it is.
by Kirk Enstrom/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 15:46:29

Typically, the court announces there is a verdict, and there is time given for attorneys, their clients, family members, media, etc. to get to the courtroom.
by Kirk Enstrom/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 15:49:50

@Kirk Enstrom/Staff How much longer?
by Lucy at Friday, May 27, 2011 16:08:30

We have not had an indication from the court of a specific time for the verdict announcement. It can take from 10 minutes to an hour, usually, between the time of the announcement that a verdict has been reached and when the verdict is read in court.
by Kirk Enstrom/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 16:08:35

We have a crew in the courtroom and are waiting to hear from them.
by Kirk Enstrom/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 16:09:07

Jurors are not yet in the courtroom.
by Kirk Enstrom/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 16:13:30

Will you be broadcasting the verdict live on Channel 9?
by brian at Friday, May 27, 2011 16:13:57

We will not. We don't have permission for live video out of the courtroom in this case.
by Kirk Enstrom/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 16:14:11

Willis has been found guilty.
by Kirk Enstrom/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 16:19:30

He was found guilty on all four counts he was facing.
by Kirk Enstrom/Staff at Friday, May 27, 2011 16:21:50

We have a story up now that will be updated as we get more
