Best Answer

The McMartin Preschool trial was the longest in United States history. It lasted seven years. There were allegations of child abuse and allegations that a tunnel was found where the abuse occurred. In the first trial, the defendants were acquitted on 52 counts. The jury was deadlocked on 13 counts. In the second trial, the jury was deadlocked on all 8 counts and the judge declared a mistrial. To this day, what happened has been highly contested by those that believe in the guilt or the innocence of the defendants.
