A federal jury Thursday acquitted former charter school operator Dorothy June Brown on six fraud counts, but said they were deadlocked on 54 others. Prosecutors vowed a retrial, and a juror interviewed said the vote was 9-3 in favor of conviction on charges that Brown had defrauded four charter schools that she founded of more than $6.7 million. The jury had deliberated for seven days after hearing more than five weeks of testimony. Read Dave Davies' coverage for NewsWorks and the story from the Inquirer's Martha Woodall.
