The jury could not reach a unanimous verdict after three days, therefore the judge declared the case against Baltimore police officer William Porter a mistrial.

Apparently the jurors told the judge yesterday that they could not reach a unanimous decision. The judge however sent them back, asking that they continue to try to reach one.

However today, due to the reported jury gridlock, the judge declared the case a mistrial on all charges against Porter which include:

Porter pled not guilty to all charges, as have all other five officers charged in connection with Gray’s death.

In April, Gray died while in police custody from a severe spinal injury. Officer Porter allegedly failed to get medical attention for Gray as the transport vehicle carrying Gray made several stops in Baltimore, on the way to the police station.
