    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . I'm going to guess that you're asking whether a judge can delay jury deliberations for up to two weeks or more. The answer is that it depends on what's "reasonable" under the circumstances.

    If you want your lawyer to preserve this issue he or she should object to the delay as unduly oppressive. Then again if the delay was granted at the request of defense counsel for the purposes of securing a defense medical expert witness, then it stands to reason that the Defendant is implicitly waiving any right to later claim the delay, requested on his or her behalf, was unduly oppressive or unreasonable.

    If the Defendant is convicted then he or she must timely appeal and must show that the trial Court abused its discretion by permitting protracted jury deliberations. The Court of Appeals will review for abuse of discretion. Bear in mind that trial courts have fairly wide latitude in how they choose to administer trials.

    For a good discussion of this issue see State v. Kuhnhausen, 201 Or. 478, 272 P.2d 225 (Or., 1954) and State v. Johnson, 116 P.3d 879, 339 Or. 69 (Or, 2005).

    Good luck.
