The jury in the case of a police officer accused of raping women he met on duty were sent home after failing to reach a verdict on Wednesday.
Newcastle Crown Court has heard how Pc Stephen Mitchell, 42, offered "favours" to heroin addicts in return for sex.
The Northumbria officer, of Glasgow, denies five counts of rape, six of indecent assault and 15 of misconduct in public office between 1999 and 2006.
The jury is due to continue its deliberations on Thursday.
During a five-week trial, the jury heard that Mr Mitchell preyed on heroin addicts, shoplifters and a disabled teenager by offering them help while in custody at Pilgrim Street Police Station in Newcastle.
But his defence claimed the women colluded against him after a rumour started by one claimant was picked up by others in the city's close-knit criminal fraternity.
