How to Live Stream the Depp vs. Heard Trial

The YouTube channel for the Law&Crime Network has scored millions of views for its continued video coverage of the trial.

The channel clips up key moments from the trial and broadcasts live streams from each day of the trial. These videos can last between seven to nine hours in length, with each one available to go back through now.

When the court reconvenes on Monday, Law&Crime Network will once again have a live stream available for what will be Day 20 of the trial.

When the Trial Will End

Judge Penney Azcarate has stated that this will be the final week of testimony, with closing arguments expected to take place on Friday, May 27.

Each week of the trial has run from Monday to Thursday with Fridays off so this will be the first time during the trial that the court is called in at the end of the week. That date is subject to change depending on what happens in the days leading up to Friday. Originally, the closing statements were scheduled for Thursday, May 19, but the end date was extended so that significant evidence was given extra time to be considered.

There is currently no deadline imposed on a verdict. The jury will be sent away to deliberate amongst themselves after they've heard the closing arguments on Friday.
