A mistrial is declared because of Richmond police attempts to intimidate a jury.

"...the last two days of the trial - crunch time - saw half of the South Richmond courtroom packed by Richmond police officers, including top brass, in full uniform.

The night before, the jury foreman had been upset by her contact outside her home with Richmond police officers who questioned her nephews on the street as possible suspects in a robbery. (They apparently weren't involved in the crime.)"
