Jury deliberating sentence for Josh Brent

Posted: Updated:

A Dallas County jury will continue deliberating the sentence of ex-Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent on Friday morning.

Testimorny in the punishment phase of the trial took less than a day to complete. The jury began deliberations at 3:30 p.m. Thursday and stopped for the day an hour later.

Brent faces up to 20 years behind bars or as little as probation. Deliberations resume at 9 a.m. on Friday.

Brent was convicted of intoxication manslaughter on Wednesday in the Dec. 2012 death of Jerry Brown in a car wreck where Brent was the driver and Brown the passenger. Authorities said Brent's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

The mother of Brown was the final person to testify on Thursday and told the court she doesn't hold a grudge against Brent over her son's death.

"We all make mistakes," Stacey Jackson, Brown's mother, said.

Jackson's testimony was emotional, at times tearing up on the stand.
