................one day of deliberations per week of trial. So we're probably looking at next week.

And my experience has always been that fast verdicts are usually guilty verdicts, but I've had juries come back quick with not guilty verdicts as well. In this case, because the evidence is so overwhelming, I would think a quick verdict indicates a conviction.

I would guess that we're looking at several days of deliberations. They have 34 counts to consider, and they'll have to do each one individually. Invariably, there will be some "horse trading" as to which to find him guilty of and which to toss as well. I would be shocked if there was a guilty verdict on all 34 counts.
