COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - A mistrial has been declared in the trial of a former northern Idaho teacher charged with lewd conduct of a child under the age of 16.

The Spokesman-Review reports (https://bit.ly/1E4yRye) that 1st District Judge Fred Gibler declared the mistrial Wednesday after jurors couldn’t reach a unanimous decision.

Kootenai County Prosecuting Attorney Barry McHugh says he’ll go forward with a second trial for Daniel Abram Taylor.

Authorities say Taylor had inappropriate contact with a 5-year-old girl. He has pleaded not guilty.

Taylor was a science teacher at Venture High School in Coeur d’Alene but resigned in March 2014.
