Mistrial (adjective) – In the court of law, a mistrial happens when a jury cannot agree on a guilty or not guilty verdict. When this happens, the charges against the accused are dropped, but may be reinstated at a later date.

  • The courtroom erupted in anger when the judged declared a mistrial due to a hung jury on the 1985 murder case of Jenna Roberts.
