Scrushy Jury Can't Decide - Will it be a Mistrial?
"We regret to inform the court that after many days of deliberating we were unable to reach a verdict of either guilty or not guilty of any/all counts."
What can the judge do-
1. Call it a mistrial.
2. Send the jury back to deliberate more.
3. Give them an Allen charge. (see here for explanation)
