Jurors will return this morning to a San Fernando Valley courthouse to continue considering Britney Spears' fate in the singer's misdemeanor driver's license case. Jurors deliberated for a little over two hours Friday before recessing for the weekend. They listened to roughly a day's worth of testimony and arguments in the case, which was filed last year after Spears hit a parked car and left the scene.

Twelve jurors would have to agree to convict the 26-year-old, who faces jail time and a fine if she's found guilty.

She hasn't appeared in court and didn't testify during the trial.

A prosecutor says Spears was obligated to obtain a California driver's license, but her attorney says Spears' primary residence is in Louisiana and she was properly licensed by that state.
