Because of this, no matter how many times the state puts Zimmerman on trial, the outcome will probably be the same: a hung jury.
As speculation of a hung jury escalates, Diane Dimond reports on the courtroom chatter.
The first trial resulted in a hung jury, and a new one is scheduled for September in Los Angeles Superior Court.
A jury that is unable to reach a verdict of guilty or not guilty. The result is a mistrial, and legal proceedings must be reinitiated to bring the case to trial again. Trying the case a second time does not constitute double jeopardy.
