Does the fact that the jury deadlocked at the second trial affect our prejudice analysis?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Stillwell, H041819 (Cal. App. 2016):

10. The fact that the jury deadlocked at the first trial also impacts our prejudice analysis to some extent. While we may not "speculate on the reason for the deadlock, . . . the divergent verdicts suggest a close case." (People v. Foy (2016) 245 Cal.App.4th 328, 352.)
