Andrew Pace is scheduled to go before a jury again July 2 to face the charges of sexual battery, unlawful sexual acts with a minor and false imprisonment.

PANAMA CITY — A man accused of drugging a 16-year-old to sexually take advantage of the teen will get second chance at trial after jury deliberations deteriorated Wednesday to the point that one juror asked to leave immediately out of fear for her safety.

Andrew Allan Pace, 65, appeared in court Wednesday for the second day of testimony in his trial. He was arrested in May 2016 after neighbors in the affluent neighborhood of Delwood Point saw a naked and distraught 16-year-old boy fleeing Pace’s house, claiming to have been drugged and raped. At the end of the trial, though, Circuit Judge Brantley Clark declared a mistrial after the jury members said they could not reach a verdict.

Pace is scheduled to go before a jury again July 2 to face the charges of sexual battery, unlawful sexual acts with a minor and false imprisonment.

Jurors deliberated for almost four hours Wednesday before telling Clark they would not be able to reach a verdict. What transpired in the jury room was unclear, but discussions apparently became hostile, from the reaction of one juror. By the end of the evening, that juror sent a message to Clark that she no longer felt safe in the discussions and wanted to leave.

Walking from the courthouse, the victim in the case, who is now 18, said he was disappointed by the outcome. He declined to comment further but will again testify when the case goes back before a different jury.

The teen and Pace both testified in the trial and gave starkly different accounts of what happened May 20, 2016, including how DNA from the teen ended up on Pace’s genitals.

Pace told the jury Wednesday he’d been taking measurements of the teen inside his Delwood Point home to be sent off to a Tallahassee modeling agency. At one point, the teen jumped on the bed and began tying ligatures around his own ankles, Pace said, requesting to be completely restrained.

“He asked me to tie up his hands, and I said that’s too much for me — I’ll tie up one hand in a slipknot, but I’m not tying up your your other hand,” Pace told the jury. “I said, 'I want you to get up and get free anytime you want, but that’s the most I’ll do.'”

Pace claimed no sexual contact occurred afterward and that instead, a trip to the bathroom a short time later was how DNA matching the teen was found on his genitals after his arrest.

During his testimony, though, the teen refuted Pace’s story and said he never jumped on the bed, asked to be tied up or consented to sexual contact with Pace.

A day earlier, he instead told jurors that he had been the one to return from the bathroom to find Pace waiting with a drink in hand.

“About 15 minutes later, I started feeling really light-headed,” the 18-year-old told the jury Tuesday. “It was a fainting feeling, like I was feeling depressed. It was weird.”

In the prosecution's closing arguments, Jennifer Hawkins told jurors that not only did the DNA evidence recovered from Pace point to his guilt, but so did the accounts of two witnesses who saw the teen fleeing Pace’s home that night.

The victim “leaves all his clothing in the house and flees into the street looking for any help ... desperate to be hidden from that man in an absolute state of terror,” Hawkins told the jury, pointing to Pace. “And someone else saw him seconds after all this happened.”

When the teen later was taken to the hospital, a toxicology report revealed a blood-alcohol content of 0.233 percent and the presence of benzodiazepine and cannabinoids.

During the trial Hawkins laid out the theory that Pace lured the 16-year-old through social media with the promise of a modeling career. Pace then arranged a meeting over lunch with the teen before returning to his house in an affluent neighborhood to take measurements for presumptive modeling gigs. But once there, Hawkins said, Pace instead gave the juvenile a laced drink and took advantage of him.

“After that drink, he was done,” she said. “It’s just flashes.”

Defense attorney Stan Peacock, however, presented an alternate story line that the juvenile had approached Pace for modeling opportunities after knowing him for years. He’d at times done yard work for Pace at another of his properties, Peacock said.

Peacock told the jury that, as a 16-year-old, the juvenile was able to legally consent to sex. He also honed in on physical examination of the teen in an attempt to show no sexual contact occurred. And Peacock used a statement the teen made to law enforcement to accuse him of doing anything to become a model with an underlying motive of becoming rich.

“He was in it to make money,” Peacock told jurors. “He’s able to tell the various kinds of modeling he was willing to do ... if he could just get a foot in the door from his photographer buddy Andy.”

Hawkins countered that the teen had been looking to succeed as a model with a promise of a career from a man he considered a friend.

“There is no question this 16-year-old wanted a job and that he would make money,” Hawkins said. “He went over there with hopes he would get found, make money and be able to get away.”

The jury, ultimately, could not definitively pick a side.
