A jury Thursday deadlocked on a verdict in the case of a former substitute teacher in Murrieta and Temecula accused of molestation.
Daniel James Oberg is charged with five counts of committing lewd acts on a child under 14, according to court records.
The jury was in the midst of deliberations -- having started Tuesday afternoon -- when the panel informed the judge it was deadlocked.
The jurors had asked five questions of the judge and attorneys before it found itself at an impasse.
The day of his arrest, Oct. 8. 2009, Oberg, a then-Wildomar resident, was scheduled to work at a Temecula school, said Melanie Norton, spokesperson for the Temecula Valley Unified School District.
He had worked at six school sites, including high schools, middle schools and elementary schools, Norton said at the time.
Oberg also worked within the Murrieta Valley Unified School District, substitute teaching at schools that included Shivela Middle School.
