Wagers molestation case ends in mistrial

TAHLEQUAH — A mistrial was declared in the lewd molestation case against Roxie Lee Wagers less than four hours after jurors began their deliberations.

The foreman of the panel told District Judge Darrell Shepherd just before 7 p.m. Friday that jurors would be unable to reach a unanimous decision on the three felony counts against Wagers, 73.

Shepherd declared a mistrial and set the case for the next trial docket, which begins May 19.

Wagers is accused of molesting a girl two times and exposing himself to her at another time, though the victim testified during the trial that it had happened more than 100 times.
