The jury in the trial of Buxton Selectman Jean Harmon has deadlocked in their attempt to reach a verdict on the Misdemeanor Assault charges in the alleged assault on Buxton’s Solid Waste Manager, Greg Heffernan.
Mrs. Harmon was tried in front of a jury at the York County Superior Court in Alfred on July 25, 2019. If she had been found guilty, Harmon faced up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
Ater an extended period of deliberation where the jury asked six times to further review evidence and to get guidance from the judge, they were unable to come to a decision.
The judge then declared a mistrial.
