    convene to the guilty room?

    A friend of mine had just become a district court judge and was nervous about presiding impartially over his first criminal trial. As a former prosecutor, he could see the preponderance of evidence was clearly against the defendant. The proceedings went smoothly, until it was time for him to instruct the jury. "The jury," he said, "is to convene to the guilty room."
    Hi! What does " convene to the guilty room" mean? Thank you!

    It means to assemble / to meet in the guilty room.
