Mistrial declared in 2011 gang murder trial

After a Sacramento Superior Court jury failed to reach a verdict today in the murder trial of Marquis Pierre Young, Judge Raoul M. Thorbourne declared a mistrial.

Jurors convicted Young of being an ex-felon in possession of a gun, however, and Thorbourne scheduled his sentencing for June 7. With the jury's vote running 9-3 for acquittal on the murder count, Deputy District Attorney Leland Washington did not say whether prosecutors will retry Young. Thorbourne scheduled a May 17 hearing for further proceedings in the murder case.

Judge Thorbourne also declared a mistrial on the jury's inability to reach a verdict on a third count of assault with a firearm. The vote was 7-5 for acquittal on that count, the jury foreman told the judge.
