Shithead convicted

Okay I missed the predicted time for the jury deliberations by 20 minutes. they must've taken a break first.

Still pretty good reckoning on my part, No?

Jett found guilty of murder
By Graeme J. Zielinski - Express-News

A Bexar County jury deliberated for one-and-a-half hours Friday before finding Richard Jett guilty in the 2006 stabbing and beating death of 80-year-old Homer Lee Daniels.

Jett, 50, whose erratic behavior throughout the trial did his cause little good, absented himself from Friday's closing arguments and the reading of the verdict.

On Thursday, against the advice of his lawyers, he took the stand in his own defense and delivered a rambling, incriminating performance.

The punishment phase for Jett, who is facing a minimum of 25 years in prison, will begin Monday after his competence is evaluated by a court-appointed doctor for a third time.
