Jury In Tisdale Sex Case Unable To Reach Verdict

Friday, May 30, 2008 at 15:45



There’s a hung jury in the Tisdale trial of a Saskatchewan man accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old Cree girl on a country road.


Jurors in the case of Jeffrey Brown told the judge that they were steadfastly deadlocked and that there is no evidence that would help them reach a verdict.


The Crown will now decide if it wants to pursue a new trial.


The prosecution says the outcome is disappointing while Brown’s defence says they’re not surprised.
