UPDATE: 8:47 p.m.
Day 1 of the Jinwright sentencing hearing ended just before 8 p.m. Court will resume Thursday at 8:30 a.m. Qcitymetro.com will post today’s latest events on Thursday morning.
The federal sentencing hearing for pastors Anthony and Harriet Jinwright will likely stretch into a second day, U.S. District Judge Frank Whitney told the courtroom just before calling a 4 p.m. break.
The judge said he wants to get through all of the Jinwright’s character witnesses today, because some took time off from work and others traveled far distances, including one from South Africa.
Court is expected to adjourn for the day around 6 p.m.
