A judge told a jury to continue deliberating in the case of a Palm Coast man accused of sexual battery and lewd molestation of a young girl who was visiting his home in Palm Coast.

Monserrate Teron, 59, whose residence was on Edwin Lane, was charged with one count of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under 12 years old by an offender 18 or older and two counts of sexual battery of a child under 12.

The jury began deliberating at 3:37 p.m. Thursday.

Shortly before 6 p.m. the jury sent a note to Circuit Judge Terence Perkins that they could not agree. The judge then had the 12-member jury – seven women and five men – return to the courtroom and instructed them to continue deliberating.
