In this undated photo released by the Fresno Police Dept. shows Bobby Lee Pearson. Pearson, a defendant in a Central California burglary case, walked out of a courtroom a free man after a jury mistakenly signed a not-guilty verdict form, even though it was hung and could not reach a verdict. The flabbergasted judge said Wednesday, June 11, 2014, he had no choice but to order Pearson to be released from jail because the not-guilty verdict had been put on the record.
