N.Y. Criminal Procedure Law Section 310.60
Discharge of jury before rendition of verdict and effect thereof


1.

A deliberating jury may be discharged by the court without having rendered a verdict only when:

(a)

The jury has deliberated for an extensive period of time without agreeing upon a verdict with respect to any of the charges submitted and the court is satisfied that any such agreement is unlikely within a reasonable time; or

(b)

The court, the defendant and the people all consent to such discharge; or

(c)

A mistrial is declared pursuant to section 280.10.

2.

When the jury is so discharged, the defendant or defendants may be retried upon the indictment. Upon such retrial, the indictment is deemed to contain all counts which it contained, except those which were dismissed or were deemed to have resulted in an acquittal pursuant to subdivision one of section 290.10.
