Federal jurors deliberating the Sarah Palin e-mail hacking case told the judge Thursday they are deadlocked on one charge after reaching unanimous decisions on three others.

They adjourned in the afternoon and will return Friday.

The jurors declined to announce their verdicts on charges of wire fraud, unauthorized access to a computer and obstruction of justice. The deadlocked charge is identity theft.

Former University of Tennessee student David Kernell is charged with breaking into the e-mail while Palin was the Republican vice presidential candidate in 2008.

The 22-year-old faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
