STORY: "Mistrial possible with jury deadlocked in Levin case: Judge sends jurors back to hotel to sleep on it," by reporter Daryl Slade, published in the Calgary Herald on January 28, 2013.

GIST: The jury in the Dr. Aubrey Levin sexual assault trial appears to be deadlocked and a mistrial looms. In a note to Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Donna Shelley on Sunday night, after three full days of deliberations, the jury said it was at an impasse. “Despite vigorous and lengthy deliberations, we are unable to reach a verdict on any of the nine counts. We do not believe further deliberations will change this,” the note said. Without the jury present, the judge held discussions with defence lawyers Chris Archer and Karen Molle and Crown prosecutors Bill Wister and Dallas Sopko. Then she brought the seven men and four women jurors back the courtroom and told them to go to the hotel and get a good night’s sleep. She said their position would be dealt with in the morning."
