Mistrial in Howard Co. teen sex case
A judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a former JROTC instructor accused of having sex with a 17-year-old student.
The mistrial was declared Thursday in Howard County Circuit Court after jurors said they could not reach a verdict.
Fifty-two-year-old Charles Ray Moore of Bowie had been charged with having sex with a minor and fourth-degree sex offense. He worked as a Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps instructor at Atholton High School in Columbia, which the student attended.
Moore maintained that he did not have any sexual relationship or inappropriate contact with his former student. The former student, now 18, said that she and Moore had sex in a supply room.
Prosecutors say they will retry the case.
