State Dismissed Failure to Report Sex Offense after Hung Jury

July 2011

A mandatory reporter is someone who by reason of either his relationship with a minor or his career or profession is mandated by law  to report to the authorities if he reasonably believes abuse, neglect or specific violations of the law occurred to the minor.

Failure to report is a felony and can subject the person to harsh consequences including jail or prison not to mention social stigma.

After a Jury Trial in which the jury hung (could not agree), a mistrial was declared and the prosecution ultimately dismissed the case against Client.
