A juror in the trial spoke with our partners at The Frontier.

He says all of the jurors who acquitted Betty Shelby after more than nine hours of deliberation wrote a letter to Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan, saying Shelby should never again be a patrol officer.

The juror tells The Frontier he will always regret not hanging the jury.

He said: "At one point I talked with another juror about just hanging the jury, and making the state try the case again. We really agreed that if they did a better job, they could have convicted her... I'll always feel like a coward for not doing that."
