Mistrial granted in Vanderbilt University rape trial


A judge has granted a mistrial in the case of two former Vanderbilt University football players who had been convicted in January of a campus rape, on the grounds that during jury selection, the jury foreman intentionally withheld the fact that he was a sex crime victim. Prosecutors plan to request a new trial.
