Mistrial declared in alleged gangrape case
Los Angeles Times |
"A judge on Monday declared a mistrial in Orange County's high-profile gang-rape case after jurors lamented they were 'hopelessly deadlocked' over charges that three young men victimized an apparently unconscious 16-year-old girl in a Newport Beach mansion. The case, which has riveted Orange County for months, was built around a videotape of the incident made by the defendants, who include the son of a wealthy Corona del Mar businessman and top assistant to Sheriff Michael S. Carona... If convicted on all counts, the three could have each been given up to 55 years in prison for raping the girl and sexually assaulting her with objects including a pool cue and a lighted cigarette."
