Britney Spears - Friday 23rd May 2008

*file photos* * BRITNEY CASE A MISTRIAL Britney Spears' trial for driving without a licence has been scrapped, after a Van Nuys, California jury failed to reach an unanimous decision. After more than two days of deliberating, jurors returned to court on Tuesday (21Oct08) to reveal they were deadlocked, with two members voting guilty, and ten not guilty - forcing the judge to declare a mistrial. Prosecutors now have to decide whether to ask for a re-trial. The charges stem from Spears' arrest last year (07) for driving without a valid California state licence. If convicted, Spears faces a maximum six months in jail and a $1,000 (£540) fine. She has already rejected a plea deal that would have saved the case from going to trial - because it would have left her with a criminal record.
