Drew jurors stalled on one charge


Los Angeles – Federal jurors in Los Angeles deliberating charges against Lori Drew have suggested in a note to the judge they've reached verdicts on three of the four counts.

Drew is accused of conspiracy and accessing computers without authorization for her alleged role in a scheme to create a fake online profile of a teenage boy to harass 13-year-old neighbor Megan Meier.

Megan was being treated for depression. She committed suicide in 2006 after receiving a cruel message on the internet.

Jurors asked Judge George Wu Tuesday if they could be hung on one count but unanimous on the others.

Wu told them to return Wednesday and resume deliberations.
