The jurors are anonymous known even to the judge only by numbers. They're picked up by federal marshals at or near their homes each day and are sent back the same way each evening.
Courtroom sketch artists are not allowed to draw their faces.
The jury asked for yet more testimony--from a DEA agent and a Coast Guard officer involved in three maritime seizures totaling more 35 tons of coke from 2004-2007.
Jurors indeed must unanimously find Chapo guilty of at least 3 of the 27 subcounts--but only three.
Some of the violations are also separate counts in the indictment.
It's a level of complexity the govt itself chose to use.
Chapo looked pretty cheerful when the marshals brought him out for the read back. He shook hands with his whole legal team, waved to his wife, all with a big smile on his face.
At 10 am, a group of lawyers showed up in court for another matter while the jury was out: a civil lawsuit against three banks.
The bank lawyers, looking very much like bank lawyers, were seated at Chapo's defense table.
Everyone knew it was a joke. But the seat remained empty nonetheless.
