"That person had their own view of the evidence," he said. "It has to be respected. You don't have to agree with it. But you have to respect it and you can't simply write it off as 'Well, that person just didn't know what they were doing, or they felt sorry for Erika.'"

A judge declared a mistrial on December 3, 2019, in the case of Erika Sandoval, a 33-year-old Tulare County woman charged with first-degree murder for the killing of her ex-husband, after the jury could not reach a verdict in her case. She had been accused of shooting Exeter police officer Daniel Green four times on February 6, 2015, and was facing the death penalty or life in prison if convicted.

The jury consisted of five men and seven women. After months of testimony and a week of deliberations, one juror held strong in their position, resulting in a hung jury. That juror did not support a first-degree murder conviction. Sandoval's attorney, Dan Chambers, commented, "That person had their own view of the evidence," he said. "It has to be respected. You don't have to agree with it. But you have to respect it, and you can't simply write it off as 'Well, that person just didn't know what they were doing, or they felt sorry for Erika.” The district attorney's office plans to try Ms. Sandoval again for the crime.

The case has received substantial media attention, both in California and nationwide. Tomorrow, it will be featured on the CBS show 48 Hours. In the show, Attorney Chambers will explain his perspective on the case. The show will air on Saturday, December 7, 2019, at 10 p.m. EST.
