A mistrial was declared in a sexual assault case against a former Tucson Police Department officer.

The trial of Benjamin Gaballa ended with a hung jury Friday.

Prosecutors argued that Gaballa raped a woman he had arrested. 

Tucson Police said Gaballa was fired in August 2013 after only one year on the job. 

There'll be a status conference next Thursday to discuss a possible new trial.
