Mistrial declared in Saratoga County attempted murder case

December 17, 2018 05:39 PM

A judge declared a mistrial Monday in an attempted murder case, after a jury deliberated for three days and couldn't reach a unanimous verdict.

NewsChannel 13 has learned that there was a lone holdout who didn't think Stephen Lerario was guilty of shooting and critically injuring his girlfriend in April, inside the Greenfield trailer home they shared. The mistrial means another trial will be scheduled in the future.

Lerario could be sentenced to 25 years to life in prison if he's found guilty of the top charge, because he has two prior felony convictions.
