A Salisbury judge on Thursday declared a mistrial for former Wicomico High School Football Coach David Nettles who was charged with inappropriately touching a student.The jury deadlocked after about five-and-a-half hours of deliberations.

Nettles was arrested in February of 2011 for allegedly abusing two children between 1997 and 2001.

Last September during his first trial, Nettles was found "not guilty" of third degree sex offense.

The Wicomico County State’s Attorney Office says it may re-try Nettles.
