The trial of a 27-year-old Big Spring man charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon ended Wednesday in a mistrial, as the jury announced it was hopelessly deadlocked.
According to officials with the 118th District Court, the jury â€” which was seated Monday and heard testimony Tuesday and Wednesday â€” announced it was hung late Wednesday afternoon with 10 jurors voting guilty and two voting not guilty.
Brian Christopher Lewis, 27, currently being held at the Howard County Detention Center, was being tried on a single charge of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
