Deliberations: Not over yet, jury split on guilt, Judge to give Allen Charge

Currently, although it is not over yet, the jury in the trial of Wesley Molina-Cirino is currently hung.

A Note just handed that says "X amount of us think he is guilty, X amount that says he isn't guilty beyond a reasonable doubt."

Judge Barry Donalty is bringing the jurors back in and is going to give them an Allen Charge, in which he tells them not to give up their strong convictions, but to try and deliberate more to see if they reach an agreement.
