Judge shows pa­tience with dead­locked Menendez jury

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - NATION -

Ju­rors in Sen. Bob Menendez’s bribery trial went an­other day with­out reach­ing a ver­dict af­ter a judge told them to “take as much time as you need” to de­lib­er­ate on 18 counts against the New Jer­sey Demo­crat and his wealthy friend.

The panel de­lib­er­ated all day Tues­day with­out reach­ing con­sen­sus, a day af­ter they’d sent a note to U.S. Dis­trict Judge Wil­liam Walls say­ing they were dead­locked on all the counts. Walls told them to sleep on it and re­turn in the morn­ing.

When they came back Tues­day, he re­minded them that ju­ries fre­quently take time to come to a con­sen­sus.
