A hung jury was declared this afternoon in a case charging Gordon Leong, 24, with 110 felony counts in connection with a scheme for foreign nationals to fraudulently obtain driver’s licenses in New Mexico.

Jurors, who began deliberating on Friday, were hung on all counts.

The licenses were issued by the Motor Vehicle Department or its private contractors to Chinese nationals who flew in and out of New Mexico on a quick turnaround to acquire them. When state Taxation and Revenue discovered the alleged conspiracy, the licenses were cancelled.
