Athens Jury unable to reach verdict
(2007-11-09)
(WOUB) - An Athens County Municipal Court jury could not reach a verdict in the menacing and ethnic intimidation trial of Edward Mahony.

Prosecutor Lisa Eliason says the judge last night dismissed the jury after three hours of unsuccessful deliberations.

Mahony - an Ohio University student at the time - allegedly made racial slurs and physical threats to two African American women students at the O-U library in May.

Eliason says she will meet with the defense attorney next week to talk things over, including a possible plea deal.

If there's no settlement, Mahony will be re-tried next month.
