Federal prosecutors will decide by July 2 whether to retry Scott Warren, according to a news release Wednesday from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Warren, a humanitarian aid worker from Ajo, was accused of conspiring to smuggle two Central American men in January 2018.

Warren’s defense lawyer Greg Kuykendall said eight jurors voted “not guilty” and four jurors said “guilty.”
