Seabrook Jurors Wrap Fourth Day of Deliberations

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.

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.
