separation of jury

separation of jury
After a case has been given to the jury for deliberation, they are not permitted to separate until a verdict is reached except under the control of the court through officers and sheriffs. In civil cases in some jurisdictions this rule is relaxed generally with admonition from the judge not to discuss the case with anybody.
