Britney Spears' driving case declared a mistrial and the case is completely dismissed

Post by Baz on Wed Oct 22, 2008 4:04 am







Jurors in Britney Spears' driving trial failed to reach a unanimous verdict, which resulted in the case being declared a mistrial yesterday (October 21).

The pop star was facing charges for driving without a valid Californian license, following an event in Los Angeles last August when Spears was photographed hitting a parked car and leaving the scene.

Jury deliberation began on Friday. Yesterday a jury foreman announced that the jurors could not reach an agreement. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Steele encouraged them to deliberate further in hopes that they would reach a verdict.

However, today the foreman announced that the panel failed to agree after four votes on whether the singer was guilty of the misdemeanour charge, reports the Associated Press.

Steele then thanked the jurors for their service, dismissed them and concluded the trial. It has not yet been announced whether Spears will be retried.

The case against Britney Spears for driving without a valid California license has been completely dismissed.

After jurors failed to reach a unanimous verdict yesterday (October 21), voting 10 to 2 in favour of Spears' acquittal, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Steele declared a mistrial, as previously reported.

Soon afterwards, prosecutors told the judge they were dropping the matter, which resulted the complete dismissal of the case, reports the Associated Press.

The charges stemmed from an incident in Los Angeles last August in which Spears was photographed hitting a parked car and leaving the scene.

Spears' attorney declared the outcome a victory. The dismissal spares the singer from having a criminal record.
