Jurors in the trial of former House-aide-turned-lobbyist Kevin Ring declared themselves “irrevocably deadlocked— Tuesday on all but one charge.

Ring faces eight counts of violating federal law, including providing illegal gratuities to Congressional aides. He was indicted in September 2008 on charges stemming from the influence-peddling investigation of disgraced ex-lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
