Seabrook Jurors Wrap Fourth Day of Deliberations

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

Jurors in Councilman Larry Seabrook's federal corruption trial completed its fourth day in deliberations Wednesday after asking for more transcripts of testimony from a half dozen witnesses — including the embattled politician's former girlfriend.

The jury requested transcripts from former girlfriend Gloria Jones-Grant, who was also the executive directors for the non-profits that Seabrook allegedly used as fronts to steal more than a million dollars in City Council grant funds.

In both her direct examination by federal prosecutors and in her answers to the defense team's questions Jones-Grant's testimony was often halting and inconsistent.
