Allen

After a day of deliberations, a jury mulling the case of Jamieson Leland Allen did not return a verdict Friday.

Superior Court Judge Kathlene Gosselin instructed the jury to return at 9 a.m. Monday to continue deciding the fate of Allen, a Gainesville man accused of pretending to be a doctor and sexually assaulting a young man.

The jury listened to Gosselin’s instructions Friday morning before entering deliberations.

Allen is charged with practicing medicine without a license, aggravated sodomy, sodomy and sexual battery.

According to the indictment, the alleged incident occurred March 26, 2015.

In the afternoon, the jury expressed its difficulty in reaching a verdict and asked to review some of the evidence presented at trial.

At 5:30 p.m. Friday, Gosselin sent the jury home and instructed them to return Monday.
