After a month-long trial and five (5) days of jury deliberations in Camden County Superior Court, the Court yesterday declared a mistrial based upon the jury’s failure to reach a unanimous verdict. Timothy Farrow’s client faces up to a Life Imprisonment, and a retrial has now been scheduled for April 17, 2017. “A Not Guilty Verdict in a Murder trial is never an easy decision for a jury to make, so I am pleased that at least some of the jurors were convinced enough to hold their ground. This is the second Hung Jury/Mistrial and my client has been in jail for nearly five (5) years, so a Motion to Dismiss will be filed prior to a third retrial.”
