A Longview jury is deadlocked in a the trial of a man accused of using the internet to solicit a child for sex. 34 year old Tommy Lynn Burt was arrested in February at a Longview hotel where they allegedly went to meet a person he thought was a 13-year old girl. The girl was actually an undercover police officer. Thursday, after two days of deliberation, a jury failed to return a verdict in the case.
A judge will now reschedule the case for retrial at a future date. Burt faces up to 30-years in prison if he is convicted.
