U.S. Attorney’s Office Asks Court to Schedule Retrial for Washington State Auditor Troy X. Kelley
Request for New Trial on Fourteen Charges follows Hung Jury
Today prosecutors asked U.S. District Judge Ronald B. Leighton to set a new trial for TROY X. KELLEY on the fourteen charges that a Tacoma jury was unable to reach unanimous verdicts on. Those charges relate to possession of stolen property, false statements, tax crimes and money laundering. The court set the trial for March 13, 2017.
“After careful review we have decided to seek a new trial for Troy X. Kelley on the charges the jury could not reach a verdict on,” said U.S. Attorney Annette L. Hayes. “We believe it is in the interest of justice to seek final judgment on all the counts in the indictment.”
