Jury Gets Manslaughter Case In Trial Of Little Rock Officer
Jury deliberations have begun in the manslaughter trial of a former Little Rock police officer charged with manslaughter.
Defense lawyers for Joshua Hastings on Wednesday rested without calling any witnesses.
The prosecution rested Tuesday after putting on a full day of testimony. Hastings is accused of being reckless by shooting into a car driven by 15-year-old Bobby Moore Jr., who was breaking into vehicles with two other juveniles.
Jurors left the courtroom just before noon to begin their work.
Hastings was tried earlier this year, with the case ending in a mistrial when the jury couldn't reach a verdict.
Hastings testified in that trial that he didn't act recklessly. Each side had an hour for closing arguments.
