OK - in Honduras trial, with closing arguments done yesterday, now Judge Castel in finishing his instructions to jury after which they will go into jury room to deliberate for 1 or more days. Inner City Press will cover notes and verdict @SDNYLIVE - thread
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @HCHTelevDigital @unetvhn @HoymismoT @TN5Telenoticias @UnivisionNews @diarioelheraldo @DiarioLaPrensa @radiohrn @notibomba Judge Castel tells the jury that to find a conspiracy they do NOT have to find that the conspirators sat around a table.

Inner City Press: But arguably they did - at Denny's in Tegucigalpa
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @HCHTelevDigital @unetvhn @HoymismoT @TN5Telenoticias @UnivisionNews @diarioelheraldo @DiarioLaPrensa @radiohrn @notibomba Judge Castel says jury cannot consider a government agent a member of the conspiracy. So, since Devis Leonel Rivera Maradiaga was operating at the direction of the US government after a certain point, he cannot be evidence of a conspiracy after that
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @HCHTelevDigital @unetvhn @HoymismoT @TN5Telenoticias @UnivisionNews @diarioelheraldo @DiarioLaPrensa @radiohrn @notibomba Judge Castel instructions now are mostly standard ones defining the law. This thread will continue - but only when there's something to say : ) patreon.com/posts/30815452
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @HCHTelevDigital @unetvhn @HoymismoT @TN5Telenoticias @UnivisionNews @diarioelheraldo @DiarioLaPrensa @radiohrn @notibomba OK - back from trying to bring transparency to another case in SDNY - and getting shut down and "written up" for it -- but: outside Judge Castel's courtroom many Honduran attendees of the trial are now waiting....
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @HCHTelevDigital @unetvhn @HoymismoT @TN5Telenoticias @UnivisionNews @diarioelheraldo @DiarioLaPrensa @radiohrn @notibomba Some complain they are now being allowed to wait in the courtroom (which IS the case in many other trials). Inner City Press asked, Will they / we be allowed in if and when the jury passes notes for evidence or questions to Judge Castel? Seems so. But how?
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @HCHTelevDigital @unetvhn @HoymismoT @TN5Telenoticias @UnivisionNews @diarioelheraldo @DiarioLaPrensa @radiohrn @notibomba Inner City Press has asked for notice not only of when the jury says it has a verdict, but of all notes. Now with people excluded from the courtroom while the jury deliberates in the separate jury room next door, providing notice becomes all the more important
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @HCHTelevDigital @unetvhn @HoymismoT @TN5Telenoticias @UnivisionNews @diarioelheraldo @DiarioLaPrensa @radiohrn @notibomba For those interested, this Periscope steamed returning from the #6ix9ine / Jamel Jones sentencing to the Honduras case explains some of the press freedom issues that may or may not impact on reporting of this case: pscp.tv/w/1yoKMzlOlZWG…
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @HCHTelevDigital @unetvhn @HoymismoT @TN5Telenoticias @UnivisionNews @diarioelheraldo @DiarioLaPrensa @radiohrn @notibomba Judge Castel calls jury in, now 5 pm, and tells them he assumes they are done for the day, to go "have a very pleasant evening, see you tomorrow."
@sdnylive @MatthewLeeICP @HCHTelevDigital @unetvhn @HoymismoT @TN5Telenoticias @UnivisionNews @diarioelheraldo @DiarioLaPrensa @radiohrn @notibomba Now Tony Hernandez has been taken by the U.S. Marshals back into the holding cell, and both side's lawyers are packing it. The deliberations will continue tomorrow morning.
