The jury is still deliberating in the trial of Brown Deer Police Officer Devon Kraemer.
After roughly eight hours of deliberations that began Monday afternoon, jurors told Judge Christopher Dee they could not reach a unanimous verdict in the case.
Dee replied by re-reading jurors a portion of the jury instructions and telling them to keep trying.
"You jurors are as competent to decide the disputed issues of fact in this case as the next jury that may be called to determine these issues," Dee said. "You are not going to be made to agree, nor are you going to be kept out until you do agree. It's your duty to make an honest and sincere attempt to arrive at a verdict."
The maximum sentence for the original charge is 15 years in prison. The maximum sentence on the lesser charge is 6 years in prison.
However, if jurors find Kraemer guilty of either charge, they'll also have to consider if the crime occurred with the use of a dangerous weapon. That modifier carries a penalty of up to an additional 5 years of imprisonment.
