During deliberations, the jury asked if they could give Dickerson a lesser sentence, to which the judge replied, “no.”

The prosecutor in the trial said regardless of that, the jury was able to return a unanimous guilty verdict.

The judge said the jury found beyond a reasonable doubt that he did it.
