Jury deliberations continue today in the theft trial of Baltimore Mayor Shelia Dixon.Today will be the sixth day of deliberations.

Dixon is accused of stealing or misappropriating hundreds of dollars worth of gift cards that were bought by developers and that prosecutors say were intended as donations to poor families.

Defense lawyers say some of the cards appeared to be personal gifts to the first-term Democrat from an anonymous admirer, and say others found in Dixon's home were forgotten leftovers from a charity event.

Judge Dennis Sweeney told the panel members last week not to even think about the case during their four-day, Thanksgiving weekend break.
