Philly priest-abuse jury goes home after 9th day
No verdict in Philadelphia priest-abuse case after 9th day of deliberations; more talks Monday
By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' A Philadelphia jury has failed to reach a verdict after nine days of deliberations in a groundbreaking priest-abuse case.

Several jurors appeared upset when they broke for the day Friday. But the panel has not signaled a stalemate and continues to ask for evidence from the three-month trial.

Monsignor William Lynn is the first U.S. church official charged over his handling of abuse complaints.



The 61-year-old Lynn served as secretary for clergy at the Roman Catholic archdiocese from 1992 to 2004.

Lynn is charged with conspiracy and child endangerment. He says he got many accused priests into treatment, but lacked the power to remove them from ministry.

The Rev. James Brennan is also on trial, charged with the attempted rape of a 14-year-old boy in 1996.

The jury returns Monday.
