June 4, 2006 – A mistrial was declared Saturday by District Court Judge James Giles after the jury was unable to reach a verdict in the trial of Global Resources Management principals Ashley Andrews and Campbell Malone, who were accused of conspiring to defraud the government through a fraudulent sewer contract.
A new trial date of Aug. 17 was set by Giles, according to the Sunday Avis. The article said the judge declared the mistrial when the jury could not reach a verdict after deliberating for about 30 hours. The new trial will start from scratch with a new jury.
The three-week-long trial had gone to the jury last week. (See "GRM Trial Wraps Up in Third Week.")
