Hawaii meth ring jury presses on to reach verdict

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Jurors who have been deliberating for two weeks in a major Hawaii meth ring trial are being asked to keep trying to reach a verdict.

The jury on Thursday sent a note to the court saying they're deadlocked on four counts. It's their 13th note during deliberations.

They're deliberating in a case involving four men accused of trafficking hundreds of pounds of methamphetamine to Hawaii.

U.S. District Judge Leslie Kobayashi asked the jury to write down the decisions they've made so far and put them in a sealed envelope. She then asked them to keep trying to reach a unanimous verdict.

Federal prosecutors have faced problems in the case, including Kobayashi ruling they were "sloppy" and "tardy" in providing discovery materials.
