A second day of deliberations did not see the jury reach a verdict in the rape trial of Nicholas Crawshaw.
Judge Tina Landale sent them out to continue poring over the evidence they have heard during the past three weeks shortly before 11am at Warrington Crown Court on Thursday (March 3).
Crawshaw, 23, of West Street, Hoole, is accused of 16 sex offences, including 10 rapes, against seven victims between 2010 and 2015. He denies all of the charges against him.
After first retiring on Wednesday, the jury have now had almost two full days to reach a decision.
As this stage the judge would still only consider a unanimous verdict on each of the counts.
Discussions will now resume on Friday morning.
The trial at Warrington Crown Court continues.
