The 12 jurors leave the courtroom to go to an isolated room where they will remain until the verdict is decided. Only the jury members are present for deliberation.
Jury members look through exhibits, if they need any clarification they may ask the judge. They are not allowed to disclose any information discussed in this room to people who aren't members of the jury.
The jurors compare the witnesses testimony against that of the accused, and the accused's' friend. All jurors must agree on the verdict, otherwise the jury is 'hung' and the case is a mistrial.
The court asks the jurors if they have come to a decision, and if yes, what it is. The accused is proven guilty by the jury on one count of manslaughter.
Victim's mother is brought to the stand to give a victim impact statement before the judge moves to sentencing the accused.
The Crown attorney and the defense both give statements to try and sway the sentence using facts from the case. The judge must decide on a sentence that they believe is fair for the crime committed. Sarah is sentenced to 5 years in prison, and a lifetime driving ban.
