Britney Spears -- Mistrial!

10/21/2008 3:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsThe trial of the century is finally ovah!

The jury could not reach a verdict and the judge declared the whole thing a mistrial. The jury vote came back 10 not guilty, two guilty. That wasn't a waste of time at all.

Britney was popped for driving without a license last year -- and for reasons that defy explanation, it made it all the way to trial.

Jurors spent yesterday deadlocked 10-2 but were ordered to continue deliberating. She faced a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted of the misdemeanor.

Spears was a no-show the entire trial.

Prosecutors could ask for another trial. That would be a good use of taxpayer's money.

Big Mr. P    

Friends - Wish Election day closing in on us please keep in mind what the Liberal Democrats are running as a candidate this cycle. Hussein Obama is a Marxist Socialist who will run this country into the ground and tax achievement into oblivion. Just look at Joe the Plumber. Please vote McCain/Palin on Nov. 4th and vote Yes on Prop 8 in California. We also cannot afford to have Hussein nominating Supreme Court judges. We simply cannot have that type of judge at that level.

You Californians.......you need to complain. What a waste of taxpayer time and especially $$$ in these days of monetary hardships for all! I'm sure there is a place for those $$ that could be better spent.

Party 'till you die!    

I guess Mr. P is a paid blogger who is here to spam every thread as soon as it comes out. Must be desperate!

Well the lawyers more or less got what they wanted. They made a pile of money from dragging this idiot's trial out and it looks like she will probably get off and won't learn a single thing, except that if you throw enough money at anything, you can make it go away!

No Excuses    

This countries judicial system is whacked. Only in America can you get caught in the act of doing something illegal, go to court and have a jury find you not guilty. I'll bet if this had gone to court a year ago when she was still in her "naughty girl" stage, the brain dead Jurors would of found her guilty.

okayyyyyyyyy    

I'm sure that if this was an everyday average Joe, he would have been found guilty. Although that everyday average Joe would have known he made a mistake, paid the 150.00 and been done with it.

This should have never happened. A friend of mine moved to La,pulled over,no valid license in the same state and guess what ? He got a valid license (California) showed it to the Judge/prosecutor and paid court cost but since election is coming up I guess he needed his 15 minutes of fame.lmao.What an idiot and he lost the case.

Excellent result! This infraction does not warant being convicted of a crime. It could have been settled with a fine but the prosecuitor wanted more and now he gets nothing. The judge could have made both sides megotiate a settlement instead of a trial.

To everyone who is blaming her or the state for wasting money: it is your right as a citizen to bring something to court. Exercising your rights a a citizen is never a waste of time or money, it is American.
