Britney Trial Update: Attorneys Revisit Closing Statements

Ok, so this is turning out to be the trial of the century!

The jury STILL cannot come to a unanimous decision, so the attorneys for both sides had the opportunity to go before the jury one more time.

The prosecution argued that if they found Britney to be a California resident at the time of the incident, then they must find her guilty. But if they found her to be a Louisiana resident in possession of a valid Louisiana license on her person at the time of the accident, then she is innocent. He concluded his argument by saying she testified that she was a California resident during her divorce proceedings, and she cannot have it one way then and another way now.

But residency isn't so much the issue as domicility. Confusing, I know.

Brit's attorney argued that the burden of proof is on the prosecution, and if the jury cannot come to a unanimous decision, then there must be doubt and if there is doubt, they must find her innocent.

Stay tuned for more updates coming soon...

How hard could this be to decide?
