“Deadlocked-Jury Mistrials, Lesser Included Offenses, and Double Jeopardy: A Proposal to Strengthen the Manifest Necessity Requirement”
by John L. Hodge
Criminal Justice Journal (Western State University, College of Law,* California), Fall 1986 (Vol. 9, No. 1), pp. 9 – 44
This article explains why the majority view of double jeopardy should be broadened so that, when a jury has decided that a defendant is not guilty of the main offense and is “hung” on the lesser-included offenses, that the defendant may not be retried on the main offense.
