6/24/14 State v. Ross II (A-67-12; 072042)

State v. Ross II (A-67-12; 072042)
Where there was nothing in the jury’s communications with the trial court to suggest that any juror had reached a determination on a factual or legal issue, the trial court’s decision to instruct the deadlocked jury to continue deliberations and attempt to reach an agreement, and to later substitute an alternate for an ill juror after the deadlock had been announced, did not constitute plain error.
