This is the fourth day of deliberations in the criminal trial of Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon. Jurors have now spent about 18 hours deliberating.

On Monday, they passed several notes to Judge Dennis Sweeney. Two of the notes said the jury was making progress, but needed more time.

Dixon has been charged with misconduct as well as stealing and embezzling donated gift cards. Dixon cannot be convicted of theft and embezzlement. Either she didn't have a right to the possess the cards and stole them. Or, she had a right but misused them.

If she's found guilty of any of the charges, the Democratic mayor could be forced out of office and face fines or jail time.
