Los Angeles: Mistrial Declared in Prostitution Case

August 2, 2002

In Los Angeles Wednesday, an impasse was declared in the prostitution trial of an HIV-positive woman after the Superior Court jury reported that it was deadlocked. Judge Arthur M. Lew dismissed the panel and set Aug. 7 as a pretrial hearing date for Panchita Hall, who will be retried under a 1988 state law that requires convicted prostitutes who have been informed that they are HIV-positive to be charged with a felony upon their next arrest.
