Q: The jury passed a verdict of guilty, with an appeal to the judge for clemancy. と The jury passed a verdict of guilty, depite an appeal to the judge for clemancy. はどう違いますか?
A: There’s a slight difference in meaning and intention between these two.
“The jury passed a verdict of guilty with an appeal to the judge for clemency” means the jury found the defendant guilty AND also asked the judge to show clemency, meaning leniency or mercy, likely in the punishment/sentencing.
“The jury passed a verdict of guilty despite an appeal to the judge for clemency” means that clemency was probably requested before the verdict was passed (it could have been requested by the defendant’s lawyers, the jury, or a third party) and yet the jury STILL gave a guilty verdict, something that does not show leniency or mercy. “Despite” signals that even though something was in place or asked for, it didn’t change the course of action, which in this case is a guilty verdict.

Hope that helps!

Q: What does (the jury is still out) mean?

"So their endorsement or non-endorsement basically means nothing in this case," Aftergood said, adding, "In this context, the assessments that count the most are those of CIA, NSA, FBI and ODNI."

The intelligence community likely limited the Russia assessment to those four agencies because they have the most to contribute on this topic, and because they wanted to contain the highly sensitive intelligence as much as possible, said Paul Pillar, senior fellow at Georgetown University’s Center for Security Studies who served in the intelligence community for 28 years.

"The ones that participated are the ones you’d expect on this," Pillar said. "It’s hard to see any of the others having something to contribute."

"That does not vitiate the conclusions. It does not mean the jury is still out," he added.
A: The jury is still out = a decision hasn't been made yet, a consensus hasn't been reached yet

In court, the jury goes to a separate room to decide the verdict. So if the jury is still "out" of the courtroom, they are still trying to make a decision
