A federal jury is headed for a fourth day of deliberating the fate of a Tennessee college student accused of hacking into Sarah Palin's e-mail account.
The jury in Knoxville told the judge on Thursday that they are deadlocked on one charge but have reached unanimous decisions on three others. They adjourned in the afternoon and will return Friday.
The jurors declined to announce their verdicts on charges of wire fraud, unauthorized access to a computer and obstruction of justice. The deadlocked charge is identity theft.
Former University of Tennessee student David Kernell is charged with breaking into the e-mail while Palin was the Republican vice presidential candidate in 2008.
The 22-year-old faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
