HOUSTON (AP) — A jury is scheduled for a second day of deliberations in the trial of a former Houston police officer accused of participating in the videotaped beating of a 15-year-old burglary suspect.

The Harris County jury deliberated for nearly five hours without reaching a verdict in the trial of Andrew Blomberg before being excused for the day. They were ordered to return Wednesday.

The 29-year-old former officer was fired and charged with official oppression after a videotape surfaced of the beating of Chad Holley during his March 2010 arrest. Blomberg’s attorney Dick DeGuerin told jurors, however, that “the video doesn’t tell you everything.”

Blomberg, who could face up to a year in jail if convicted, is first of four fired police officers to stand trial for their roles in the incident.
