Mistrial declared in Paul Brown case

Published: Mon, January 23, 2012 @ 12:00 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The murder trial of Paul Brown of Youngstown has ended in a mistrial after a Mahoning County Common Pleas Court judge determined that Youngstown police had not supplied evidence to the prosecution and defense.

Judge Maureen Sweeney granted the mistrial at 11:30 a.m. today. A new court date has not been set.

Brown was on trial for the murder of 17-year-old Ashten Jackson in 2009.

WOW, this surprises me, someone posting on Vindi.com doesn't have a clue what they're talking about. As I read this article, it's clear all she did is declare a mistrial because the YPD did not turn over evidence to the Prosecutor's Office or defense lawyer. A mistrial doesn't mean anyone has been set free. It simply means that this trial has ended and Mr. Brown will now have another jury trial where he will face these charges. Hence, the line that a new court date "has not been set." You should get your facts straight before posting.
