Hung... then Guilty

Despite having the prior introduced and not being able to offer an explanation, the jury still hung on all counts dealing with Ashlee.

They found her story so incredible, that even thinking that Jeff was a child pornography possessing pedophile, they still couldn't find him guilty of touching her based on her testimony.

Had it not been for the prior, Jeff would be free right now.

They also stated they had credibility issues with Alyssa, but even if her story was rock solid, they needed a conviction for Ashley too or all counts would have to be dismissed.

After being instructed to return to deliberate further, the jurrors eventually returned a verdict of guilty.
