A federal jury has reached a partial verdict in the Helio Castroneves tax evasion trial but Federal Judge Donald Graham isn’t saying much more than that. The jury has reached a decision on two charges but appears to be hung on the four other tax evasion counts and one conspiracy count. The Judge has asked the jury to try again.
The jury reached a similar “partial verdict” against Castroneves’ sister and business manager, Katuicia Castroneves. They have a full verdict against Castroneves’ attorney Alan Miller.
I’m terrible at guessing verdicts (though remarkably adept at guessing the scores at Castroneves’ old haunt, Dancing With the Stars). My guess is that the full verdict against the attorney means “not guilty” verdicts all around so far. I think they’re hung on a possible “guilty” for one or more of the counts against Castroneves and his sister because they think he did something wrong but can’t figure out what exactly. But again, just a guess. Maybe we’ll know for sure in a few days.
