Mistrial declared in Danny Masterson rape trial, jury ‘hopelessly deadlocked’

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Charlaine F. Olmedo declared a mistrial Wednesday after jurors deliberating charges of sexual assault against actor Danny Masterson were unable to reach a verdict. The jury was “hopelessly deadlocked”, she declared after inquiring whether there was anything the court could do to move them closer to reaching a unanimous decision.
