Britney Spears Stops Traffic
The jury was apparently split 10-2 yesterday and was sent back twice to deliberate, and remained in a stalemate. The judge sent the jury home and deliberations will begin anew today.
Brit was charged last year with a misdemeanor offense for allegedly lacking a valid California license.
TMZ is reporting Tuesday at noon that the Britney Spears driving-without-a-license case has been declared a mistrial.
The jury had been deadlocked for more than a day at ten voting innocent and two declaring guilty.
If convicted, Spears faced a maximum sentence of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has the option to call for a new trial.
People reports Tuesday afternoon that a mistrial has been declared in Britney Spears’ misdemeanor trial for driving without a license, and the case is now dismissed.
“The jury is hopelessly deadlocked, and I declare this a mistrial,” said Judge James A. Steele.
