SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A Sacramento jury was not able reach a verdict in the child molestation trial of a former elementary school teacher.
The Sacramento Bee reports (http://bit.ly/JS9VBe ) that a judge on Monday declared a mistrial in the case against former Sierra Oaks Elementary School teacher Shane Adair Vicars.
The 27-year-old Vicars was charged in 2010 with 22 counts in the child molestation case.
Prosecutors said Vicars molested six boys between the ages of seven and 11 who had participated in the school's Discovery Club after-school program.
The judge earlier had ordered the jury to continue deliberations after it deadlocked, but the panel was not able to reach verdicts on any of the counts.
Vicars is due back in court May 2, when a new trial date will be set.
