The San Angelo Standard-Times - "(Merril Leroy Jessop) kept a pleasant face while 51st District Judge Barbara Walther read the jury statement and pronounced the word 'guilty.'It was never one of my favorite songs, but it does keep going through my head:
Jurors heard closing arguments this morning and left at 11:30 a.m. to deliberate.
Attorneys were summoned back to the courtroom at 12:30 p.m. upon hearing that the jury had reached their verdict."
"And the judge said, 'Guilty,' in a make-believe trial, slapped the Sheriff on the back with a smile (and said) 'Supper's waitin' at home and I gotta get to it.' "Bobby Russell - "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia."
Brooke Adams has "Tweeted" that the "enhancement" was voted to apply, and thus Merril faces 99 years in prison.
