Jurors in Tony Rezko's trial are near a decision. In a note to U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve, jurors indicated "we cannot decide on one count."
St. Eve brought in the panel and gave them an instruction required by law called the Silvern instruction, which essentially says that they must go back and keep trying.
"Discuss your differences with an open mind," St. Eve said. "You are impartial judges of the facts."
The 10-woman, 2-man jury returned to their closed-door deliberations.
The note didn't specify that the jury had reached a consensus on all the other counts, but that's the assumption we've all drawn.
