Rule 3.560. Discharge of Jurors

After the jurors have retired to consider their verdict, the court shall discharge them from the cause when:

(a)     their verdict has been received;

(b)     on the expiration of such time as the court deems proper, if the court finds there is no reasonable probability that the jurors can agree on a verdict; or

(c)     a necessity exists for their discharge.

The court may in any event discharge the jurors from the cause if the prosecuting attorney and the defendant consent to the discharge.
