Jury deadlock in case involving NFA records
Posting here. The defense challenged the government's NFA records, brought in a top-notch statistical expert who testified they were not something you could use as anything but an investigatory lead. The jury deadlocked 7-5 (no word on who had the seven and who the five). Odds are that it's effectively an acquittal. Even if it was 7-5 for the prosecution, if you're losing five votes, what are the odds of turning that into 12-0 at a second trial?
