Moussaoui Jury Begins Deliberations
The jury began deliberating whether Zacarias Moussaoui should get the death penalty or life in prison without parole at 2:26 pm today. After the prosecution's argument asking for death,
Defense lawyer Gerald Zerkin countered that Moussaoui's contempt for the victims and the trial "is proof that he wants you to sentence him to death. He is baiting you into it. He came to America to die in jihad and you are his last chance."
Zerkin said the jury can instead "confine him to a miserable existence until he dies and give him not the death of a jihadist ... but the long slow death of a common criminal."
