The jury in the election fraud case of political consultant Julius Henson deliberated for a full day on Thursday in Baltimore City Circuit Court before heading home without a verdict.

The jury — seven women and five men, 10 of them black — sent a note a little before noon asking for Judge Emanuel Brown’s instructions from Wednesday, including descriptions of the four counts against Henson. Over defense counsel’s objection, Brown agreed.

Henson, 63, faces two counts of conspiracy to violate election laws, one count of election fraud and one count of violating the authority line requirement for his role in “robocalls” on Election Day 2010, which told Democrats in Prince George’s County and Baltimore they could relax and stay home. Henson was a consultant to the campaign of former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., a Republican, who was seeking to unseat incumbent Gov. Martin O’Malley.
