The jury, made up of five women and seven men, sent a note to the judge asking if it's possible to be hung on two counts of predatory sexual assault while reaching a unanimous verdict on the other three charges. The jury can convict on exclusively one of many two rape counts.
Weinstein has been charged with both rape and predatory sexual assault, with several different women testifying against him during the weeks-long-trial.
While Weinstein's lawyers would have accepted a partial verdict, the prosecution said no.
Although the jurors yesterday requested to hear a read-back of all of Sciorra's testimony beginning with her cross-examination and going on to re-direct, today they signaled to New York Supreme Court Judge James Burke that they'd heard all they needed before the cross-exam was finished.
Thus far, questions from the jury during the deliberation period have focused on Annabella Sciorra.
One count of predatory sexual assault Weinstein faces is related to Miriam Haley and Annabella Sciorra, the other is related to Jessica Mann and Sciorra.
One objective for that phrasing could be that the verdict sheet - which lays out the rates - does not contain guidance for what to do if they just can't concur on a individual count, only how they're meant to proceed the moment they've attained a verdict of responsible or not responsible.
Weinstein and his lawyers have insisted that his encounters with the women were consensual. It is withholding the name of the 2013 rape accuser because it isn't clear whether she wishes to be identified publicly. If jurors' unanimity on Mann and Haleyi were for acquittal, they would presumably have to be unanimous on acquittal on the predatory sexual assault charges, since those involve endorsing Mann or Haleyi's allegations - but they are suggesting they're hung, not unanimous.
"To speculate the verdict now would be premature and a mistake", noted the source.
"Please resume your deliberations", he said. Followers of the case know that Weinstein's future in this particular trial lies at the heart of the #MeToo movement that first began at the ending of 2017.
On Thursday, before finishing for the day, they asked to review Sciorra's cross-examination and follow-up questioning by prosecutors.
Anna Sciorra, best known for her role in HBO's "The Sopranos", testified that Weinstein came to her NY apartment one winter night in 1993 or 1994, raped her and then forced oral sex on her.
The jury overseeing Harvey Weinstein's case has become deadlocked on two of the most serious charges he's facing. Jessica Mann in NY in 2006 and 2013, respectively.
Sciorra's allegations weren't part of the original indictment when Weinstein was arrested in May 2018, but after some legal shuffling they were included in an updated one last August. But Donna Rotunno, Weinstein's lead defense counsel, said she had to catch a plane to attend a funeral. "She was brought in so there would be one witness who had some star power, one witness you may recognize and one witness whose name may mean something".
