MEMBERS OF THE JURY:
This instruction is offered to help your deliberations, not to force you to reach a verdict. You may wish to identify areas of agreement and areas of disagreement.
You may then wish to discuss the law and the evidence as they relate to areas of disagreement.
If you still have disagreement, you may wish to identify for the Court and counsel which issues or questions of law or fact you would like counsel or the Court to assist you with. If you elect this option, please list in writing the issues where further assistance might help bring about a verdict.
I do not wish or intend to force a verdict. We are merely trying to be responsive to your apparent need for help. If it is reasonably probable that you could reach a verdict as a result of this procedure, it would be wise to give it a try.
In light of the foregoing, I shall ask you to retire to deliberate further and make a conscientious effort to reach a verdict.
