A mistrial was declared Wednesday morning in Rocky Houston’s federal firearms case.
Thirteen jurors — eight women and five men — were seated to hear the case on Tuesday. They were sent home early because of bad weather.
On Wednesday defense attorney Michael McGovern informed the court that a juror whom Houston wanted challenged during jury selection was inadvertently not challenged and seated on the jury.
After some discussion, the parties came to an agreement, and the court declared the mistrial.
