Jury deliberations in the bribery case against Maryland state senator Ulysses Currie are set to continue into a fourth day.  A note sent by the jury Monday reveals some confusion about the timeframe of the alleged conspiracy.

In the note, jury members asked U.S. District Judge Richard Bennett whether they could find Currie and two co-defendents guilty of conspiracy if they did not believe a conspiracy took place in the first two months of the alleged timeframe. Bennett told the jury that they could find the senator and the two Shoppers executives guilty of conspiracy after the months they cited in the note.

The federal indictment alleges it took place between December 2002 and May 2008.

Currie is charged with bribery, extortion, conspiracy and making false statements over $245,000 in payments he received over several years from Shoppers.
