Rensselaer – Special Prosecutor Trey Smith met with jurors after a mistrial was announced in the nine-week long ballot-fraud trial.  The jurors’ comments were backed by a 2002 report from the national center for State Courts.  The report found one of the strongest factors leading jurors to deadlock is having too many counts to consider.  The two defendants faced 103 counts total.
