Jurors ended the day without reaching a verdict. They were to resume deliberating on Tuesday. The defense has argued that the men were led astray by an informant and undercover agents working for the FBI who posed as investors in Dawkins' management company. Dawkins testified that he pushed back on the fake investors' interest in paying coaches, telling the jury it made no sense because the coaches had little influence about player decisions on who to hire as agents and business managers.
Prosecutors say that the men were caught red-handed paying coaches thousands of dollars. They point to evidence that included images of Dawkins handing the coaches envelopes stuffed with cash at meetings in Las Vegas in 2017.
