Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was spotted at federal court this afternoon, raising speculation that jurors had reached a verdict on the 12th day of deliberations.
Jurors left court around 3 p.m. today without reaching a verdict.
A juror had a personal issue that prompted the early recess, according to a court spokesman.
The jury will return at 9 a.m. Thursday.
It is unclear why Kilpatrick was at court in downtown Detroit today, but a spokesman said it is possible the former mayor was checking in with pretrial services — a routine requirement.
