UPDATE: Joseph Floyd's fate in hands of jury
CRESTVIEW: The case of former Crestview police major Joseph Floyd is now in the hands of the jury.
They began deliberations around four this afternoon.
Over the past week and a half they've heard testimony from more than 90 and Floyd himself.
In closing arguments this morning Assistant State Attorney Russ Edgar reminded jurors of the eight allegations:
Making false official statements, battery, assault, official misconduct, bribery, extortion, tampering with witnesses and tampering with evidence.
In order to convict Floyd of racketeering he'll have to be found guilty on at least two counts.
The defense attorney closed by telling jurors that the trial is -not- about Floyd's personal character and he suggested that some of the witnesses could have lied on the stand.
Channel 3's Amber Southard is at the Okaloosa County Courthouse now awaiting the verdict.
