(AP Photo/Douglas C. Pizac, Pool) (KSL News) The jury in the case against polygamous-sect leader Warren Jeffs is at home this weekend.
After two hours of deliberation with no verdict, the judge gave them the weekend off.
This comes after bitter closing arguments by attorneys.
"She wept, she said 'No, I don't want to do this!'" prosecutor Brock Belnap told the jury on Friday.
In his closing statement, defense attorney Walter Bugden said, "There was no rape. There absolutely was no rape."
Jeffs is on trial for being an accessory to the rape of then 14-year-old Elissa Wall, who is now allowing her name and picture to be used.
Even if the jury finds him not guilty, Jeffs won't get out of jail because he faces similar charges in Arizona.
