A mistrial was declared this month in the case of a man accused of trafficking drugs, officials said.
Timothy Bachicha, 25, who is represented by Anna Aragon, was in a jury trial earlier this month, but District Judge Eugenio Mathis declared a mistrial after a report of jury tampering, said Tom Clayton, the prosecutor.
Clayton said a juror was seen talking to a member of Bachicha’s family. As such, the district attorney’s office is investigating the matter and may charge anyone who attempted to threaten, coerce or create a false verdict, Clayton said.
