CINCINNATI -- Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters isn’t second-guessing his decisions in the Ray Tensing trial.
After an emotional several weeks, 9 On Your Side’s Tanya O’Rourke had a one-on-one interview with Deters just an hour after Judge Megan Shanahan decided the trial would end in a mistrial.
“I am grateful for what the jury did in terms of the time and energy,” Deters said. “I am very disappointed because I think we have put on an incredible case, which demonstrated murder. When you do jury trials, you have to live with the result. We just have to live with it."
“Well, it’s really rare that you have a jury that says they are hung and then they come back with a verdict,” Deters said. “We pretty much knew that after the first time we heard they were hung that we were going to have a problem."
