Jurors deadlock on corruption charges against Cahill

A two-year quest by Attorney General Martha Coakley to prove corruption charges against former state treasurer Timothy P. Cahill ended in a deadlocked jury Wednesday, a result that Cahill called “total vindication” even though it leaves the charges pending against him.

Coakley did not say whether she would retry the case, which lasted five weeks in Suffolk Superior Court and which led the jury to deliberate for more than 40 hours before Judge Christine M. Roach declared a mistrial.
