Davis-Besse criminal jury to deliberate again today

The jury in the Davis-Besse criminal trial adjourned last night after more than seven hours of deliberations.

It is to reconvene at 8:30 a.m. today. Evidence in the trial in U.S. District Court in Toledo took a little more than three weeks to present.

Former engineers David Geisen and Rodney N. Cook were indicted in 2006 on multiple counts of withholding information about the FirstEnergy Corp. nuclear plant along Lake Erie, 30 miles east of Toledo.

Another engineer, Andrew Siemaszko, whom the government indicted as a co-conspirator, is to be tried later.

If convicted, they face maximum sentences of five years in prison and $250,000 fines.
