If At First You Don't Succeed...

The trial of a man implicated in the gang rape of a 13 year old girl in Temple derailed when the judge declared a mistrial.
Jurors told judge Joe Carroll at around 7:30 p.m. Thursday they could not reach a decision on guilt or innocence after about eight hours of deliberation.

Carroll declared the jury deadlocked and granted a defense motion for the mistrial.

Bell County Assistant District Attorney Leslie McWilliams told News 10 Friday the case would be put back on the trial docket and said she anticipated the first pre-trial hearing to be set within 30 days. Source: KWTX.com

His co-defendant is already serving time for this offense.
