(Continued)

PALESTINE —

The defense brought 10 witnesses to the stand, including Gray's parents, grandparents, siblings and other family and friends, as well as Gray's bond supervisor and Gray himself, to testify as to the defendant's character and to plea to the jury to be lenient in the young man's punishment.

The jury options in Gray's punishment were to sentence him to 2 to 20 years in prison (he would be eligible for parole after serving half of that sentence) and/or a fine not to exceed $10,000; or community supervision (parole), which was requested by the defense.
