Jerry Sandusky Trial: No Verdict Handed Down Thursday Night, Jurors Ask To Review Mike McQueary Testimony

After some initial drama early on Thursday evening, word came down that jury deliberations had stopped after seven hours. The jury informed Judge Cleland that they had not reached a verdict, but summoned the members of the court around 8:30 p.m. ET to ask for further review of Mike McQueary's testimony.

Judge John Cleland indicated that a review of McQueary's testimony would last close to two hours, so he called it a night and put the court in recess until 9 a.m. on Friday. The jury, however, continued deliberations even though it was clear a verdict would not come down Thursday night.

In addition to McQueary's testimony, the jury also asked to review the testimony of Dr. Dranov -- the close family friend of McQueary. Dranov testified about what McQueary told him after the assistant coach allegedly witnessed Jerry Sandusky raping a boy in the showers of the Lasch Building. Dranov's testimony lasted about 20 minutes.
