What should I expect when the jury retires for deliberations?

The first job of the jury is to choose a presiding juror who will see that every juror has an opportunity to be heard.  The presiding juror will also conduct the balloting when the jury votes on a verdict.

It is important that you wait to formulate your opinion about the verdict until the deliberations begin in the jury room.  To avoid arguments in the jury room, listen to everyone’s opinion, make your own decision, and vote as your intellect and conscience dictate.
