Judge tells Ala. gambling jury to keep working

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A judge has told the jury in Alabama's gambling corruption trial to keep deliberating even though it reported it was deadlocked on some counts.
The jury of 11 women and one man is set to begin its sixth day of deliberations Wednesday morning.
The jury sent the judge a note late Tuesday afternoon saying it had reached a unanimous decision on some counts but was deadlocked on others.
A defense attorney for state Sen. Quinton Ross, Lewis Gillis, said that kind of note is not unusual in a case with lots of defendants and multiple charges.
Some jurors nodded in agreement when the judge told them to keep working. A defense attorney for state Sen. Harri Anne Smith, Jim Parkman, says jurors did not appear to have a give-up attitude.
