Maniac record producer Phil Spector and his numerous wigs got off on account of a hung jury. Who goes to an insane gun-crazy producer’s house to shoot themselves in his foyer? Huh? Who? Who does that? What’s with this jury? At least convict him on account of those hairstyles. That’s reason enough to imprison someone. Look, even the seeing eye lawyer that’s escorting him had to avert her eyes from that mess.
The judge has declared a mistrial in Phil Spector’s murder trial because the jury was deadlocked 10-2 and could not reach a verdict, it was announced Wednesday. The Los Angeles jury had been deliberating for 12 days.
Jurors told Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler they were split, but did not indicate which way they were leaning. Later, a court representative said 10 jurors had voted for guilty and two for not guilty. Fidler discharged the nine men and three women, thanking them for their service.
The D.A. says that he will seek the court’s permission to re-try Spector and hopefully accquire some jurors that aren’t idiots. Ok, he didn’t say that last thing. Can you try his wig salesman? Or his hairdresser? Or Homeless Lettie out back in the alley? Whoever it was that did that to him.
More Phil Spector hair misses are after the jump.
