OKC Lawyer's Felony Assault Trial Ends In Mistrial
OKLAHOMA CITY - A hung jury has led to a mistrial in the felony case against Oklahoma City lawyer Jay Silvernail.
Silvernail was charged with assault with a deadly weapon for his involvement in a shooting last year. The shooting happened outside of Groovy's Bar near NW Expressway and May and left a victim seriously wounded.
This is not the first time Silvernail has been entangled in a shooting. Back in 2015, he pulled a gun on a former client and shot and killed him in self-defense. The most recent shooting case was supposed to be wrapping up its trial phase this week.
News 9 confirmed last night a mistrial was declared. The jury reportedly wasn't able to reach a unanimous decision after seven hours of deliberation.
A new trial date will have to be set.
