Julie Hiatt Steele Jury Deadlocked

May 7, 1999

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) _ Jurors in the Julie Hiatt Steele trial said they were ``hopelessly deadlocked″ today on all four charges of making false statements and obstructing Kenneth Starr’s investigation of President Clinton.

U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton ordered the jurors to ``make one more attempt″ to reach a verdict after the foreman told him they were deadlocked on all counts.

Jurors had been deliberating for 7 1/2 hours over two days in the trial of Ms. Steele, who is charged with making false statements that undercut Kathleen Willey’s allegation of an unwanted sexual advance by Clinton.
