Castile Jury Ends 4th Day Without Verdict

August 24: The St. Anthony Police Department says it put Yanez back on administrative leave after he had briefly returned to limited duty, citing "concerns and other feedback from the community".

The City of St. Anthony said after the verdict that Yanez "will not return to active duty".

But Yanez's lawyer argued that Castile reached for his gun after the officer ordered him not to.

The 12-member jury includes two black members.

If he'd been convicted, Yanez could have been sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined $20,000 on the manslaughter charge and five years and fined $5,000 on each of the other charges. They heard two weeks worth of testimony.

He declined to say whether he thought Yanez acted appropriately.

As to why juries deadlock, Hans of Cornell Law says "the number one reason we have found from research is the evidence being closely balanced". "My son loved this city, and the city killed my son and the murderer gets away".

The ACLU and Amnesty International issued statements criticizing the verdict and NAACP Legal Defense Fund Director-Counsel Sherrilyn Ifill said the jury's decision shows how hard it is to prosecute a police officer in a fatal shooting. He was shot five times seconds after he informed Yanez during a traffic stop that he was carrying a gun.

"Let me go!" yelled Castile's mother, Valerie. She pointed out her son was wearing a seatbelt and had his girlfriend and her daughter in the auto. They had lunch catered in during their fourth day of deliberations instead of leaving the building to eat as they had in previous days.

Yanez was the first police officer in recent Minnesota history to face charges for shooting a suspect while on-duty.

Officer Yanez took the stand in his defense.

John Thompson, who worked with Castile in St. Paul's public schools, stirred the crowd with profanity-laden remarks screamed into a microphone.

Castile was licensed to carry the weapon.

When Yanez pulled over the 32-year-old school cafeteria manager, who was in the vehicle with Reynolds and her 4-year-old daughter, Castile told Yanez that he had a gun with him and was licensed to carry it, according to prosecutors. Castile's family members reacted angrily, with his mother, Valerie, standing and swearing as the verdict was read.

After the verdict, the city of St. Anthony, where Yanez was employed, announced he would no longer serve on the city police force.

The police officer who opened fire on Philando Castile while he was attempting to abide by the law with his girlfriend and a young child in the auto has been cleared of all charges by a Minnesota jury.

Yanez shot Philando seven times after he pulled him over for a broken tail light. Attorneys for Yanez have argued that Castile caused his own death because of his actions during the traffic stop. Castile had a permit.

Castile's fully loaded gun was found in his shorts pocket, Ramsey County prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said Yanez had created a risky situation, perceived a threat where none existed and, in addition to killing Castile, nearly wounded Reynolds and her young daughter in the back seat.

Millions of people saw Reynolds in her live Facebook stream as Castile lay bleeding next to her in the driver's seat.

A Minnesota jury has reached a verdict in the trial of a police officer charged with manslaughter in the death of a black motorist.

The verdict will be revealed in court Friday afternoon.

Allysza Castile, Philando's 24-year-old sister, said after the verdict was announced that she hadn't spoken much in the last year because she gets emotional concerning her brother's death.

Yanez pulled over Castile, a 32-year-old elementary school cafeteria worker, for a faulty taillight.

Yanoz pulled over Castile after seeing him driving and saying he looked like a suspect in a convenience store robbery that had occurred days earlier. This incident gained national attention after Reynolds began livestreaming the incident on Facebook immediately after the shooting. "Afterward, one of his attorneys, Tom Kelly, said the defense was 'satisfied'".

"Shots fired", Yanez told police dispatch.

Yanez defense attorney Earl Gray aggressively cross-examined Reynolds, and she acknowledged that she exaggerated how she was treated by police in the aftermath of the shooting.

Judge William Leary told jurors Friday that he was denying the request. The judge reiterated the instructions, and sent the jury back in for further discussion. Mr Castile was licenced to have the weapon, and had been told to inform officers of the firearm in those situations for his safety. "They really failed us once again because my brother was a good man" who never raised his voice.
