Day 2 of jury deliberations in Allentown mayor trial

Jurors are deliberating for a second day in the trial of Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski.

After about six hours Wednesday, jurors reconvened Thursday to resume talks around 8:30 a.m.

Pawlowski faces dozens of charges including fraud, bribery, attempted extortion and lying to the FBI.

The judge is allowing the jury to review all evidence presented during the trial in the deliberation room.

The jury was handed the case early Wednesday afternoon. They deliberated until about 6 p.m. before going home for the night.

The judge has said it is up to jurors as to how long they deliberate and on which days. They have not been having trial on Fridays but the judge said it is up to the jury if they want to continue deliberations Friday.

The jury has had two questions so far. The first Wednesday was asking for the definition of "overact," which applies to a conspiracy charge against Pawlowski.

Later in the day Wednesday jurors asked how they could access evidence.
