Jurors deliberated for nearly two days, but were unable to reach a unanimous verdict after sitting through a trial for Walter James Whaley lll, who was charged with lewd acts upon a child, according to Shiara Dávila-Morales, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney.
Another hearing is scheduled for Nov. 14, when prosecutors plan to announce their next move in Whaley's case.
Whaley, 30, was arrested in February after the girl's mother reported that he allegedly rubbed her daughter's upper thigh for 10 to 15 seconds and then returned again to touch her shoulder as they waited for the library to open in the 200 block of East Harvard Street.
The UC Berkeley Police Department issued a warning about Whaley in July 2011 after he reportedly made inappropriate comments to two girls on campus.
In 2010, Whaley was convicted of trespassing and refusing to leave, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court records.
The following year, he was convicted of battery.
Whaley was also found guilty in 2012 on two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor under 14 in Torrance.
