Ponca City Now - March 1, 2016 12:59 pm

A hung jury has been declared on all counts in the trial of Ponca City attorney Scott Loftis.

Shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday Judge Louis Duel called the jury back to the courtroom based on a note he was given saying the jury could not reach an agreement on any of the counts.

He asked the jury if the members could reach an agreement with more time. The foreman said he did not believe they would reach agreement. The other jurors nodded in agreement.

Duel then declared a mistrial and dismissed the jurors. He told them it was their decision if they decided to discuss the case with anyone at this point.
