Jury Hung In Covington Co. Rape Trial


By Catalina Trivino


The judge declares a mistrial in the case of a man who is accused of raping a teenage girl in Opp.

The District Attorney's Office says the jury couldn't reach a unanimous decision in the trial of Russell Griggs of Rose Hill

Griggs is charged with raping a 15-year-old girl last June. Deputies say they received the call from the victim's mother claiming Griggs was raping her daughter in the restroom. His new trial will begin in October.
