    "The jury in the murder trial of music producer Phil Spector has failed to reach a verdict, leading a mistrial to be declared." BBC

    But prosecutors want a retrial, so I guess the end is not yet in sight.

    I read they were split 10-2, but the foreman wouldn't say which way they were leaning. I'm sure that's what lots of people want to know. It's certainly no surprise that the prosecutor wants a new trial. Hung juries really don't settle the matter.

    I reckon he's innocent.
    He maybe as mad as a sack of spanners, but I don't think he'd kill someone.

    Several witnesses testified that he held a gun to their head.

    Can a celebrity be convicted in California?

    Holding a gun to a head and actually pulling the trigger are far removed from each other.

    Like I said:
    Mad? Definitely
    Killer? I doubt it.

    Guilty or not: I think you've hit the nail on the head…

    Although in this case I think he is innocent…

    If the jury can't even decide, how can anyone on MacRumors. :confused:

    Agreed. I hold a gun to someone's head several times a week, but I rarely pull the trigger.
