Jury re-watches 2 key videos in police shooting of motorist

Galeno Paniagua | 14 Junio, 2017, 10:57

They resumed deliberations on Tuesday morning.

Jeronimo Yanez, a 29-year-old Latino officer, is charged in the July 6 death of Philando Castile, who was black. Yanez shot Castile seconds after Castile informed him he was carrying a handgun.

The final group of a dozen jurors includes both black jurors who heard testimony.

Squad-car video played repeatedly for the jury last week shows that the situation escalated quickly, with Yanez shooting Castile just seconds after the driver volunteered, "Sir, I have to tell you, I do have a firearm on me".

Yanez is facing charges for second-degree murder and unsafe discharge of a firearm.

Paulsen went back to the brief conversation Castile had with Yanez that night - and the fact Castile told him he had a firearm, as the dash camera showed - as further proof of why it wouldn't make sense for Castile to be motivated to pull it out and use it.

In closing, Gray told the jury, "It's not that hard of a case".

That, of course, could change in the coming years leading up to the Tokyo Games. And James wasn't the only member of his family who felt this way.

He says Yanez legitimately thought Castile was a robbery suspect. He said Castile disregarded the officer's orders and reached for his gun because he was stoned on marijuana.

And he says Yanez saw a gun and feared for his life. "This is a classic example of why, if you are a user of drugs, even marijuana, you're not allowed to have a gun", Gray said.

For the two counts of unsafe discharge of a firearm, jurors will need to decide whether the officer discharged his firearm under circumstances that endangered Reynolds and her daughter, Dae-Anna.

Yanez, who is Latino, testified last week that he saw a gun and that the driver, who was black, ignored his commands not to pull it out.

Leary refused a jury request to view a post-shooting video interview with Yanez by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, excerpts of which were read in court.

The most serious charge, second-degree manslaughter, the instructions noted, is defined as killing someone through what's known as "culpable negligence". In it, she explains she's waiting for a jury to reach a verdict against St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo (yeh-RON'-ih-moh) Yanez, who shot her son during a traffic stop.

But many Democrats have accused Sessions of misleading the Senate Judiciary Committee during his January confirmation hearing. Richard Burr (R-NC). "I know nothing but what I've read in the paper", he said. "Yes sir, I agree", Warner replied.

Clarence Castile, uncle of Philando Castile, leaves the Ramsey County Courthouse in St. Paul, Minn. on Monday, June 12, 2017. In a boisterous tone of voice, Earl contested any theory that Yanez did not see a gun on Castile.

Defense attorney Earl Gray gives his closing arguments.

The Ramsey County judge hearing the case hasn't said in open court how long each side will get for closing arguments. They were to present their closing argument later Monday.

Yanez faces one count of second-degree manslaughter and two counts of risky discharge of a firearm for endangering the lives of Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year-old daughter when he fired seven bullets into the auto. Castile had informed Yanez when the officer approached Castile's auto that he was carrying a gun.

The Star Tribune reports that the jury of five women and seven men, including just two people of color, received the case at 1:10 p.m. local time Monday.

The trial was capped by Yanez's first public words on the case since Castile died. He tells his supervisor that he didn't know where Castile's gun was and that he told him to take his hand off it. Yanez testified that he meant only that he didn't see the gun at first.
