Jurors 'Can't Reach' Unanimous Verdict in Sen. Menendez Trial

New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez greets supporters as he arrives to court in Newark N.J. Monday Oct. 16 2017. The judge in Menendez's corruption trial could rule on Monday to dismiss the bulk of the indictment against the New Jersey Democrat

In exchange, prosecutors say, the senator used his office to carry out official acts to help the doctor in various disputes with the USA government.

Afterwards, Sen. Bob Menendez stepped up to the mics.

"Go home", he told the jurors. The only question remaining is how many more days the judge will demand jurors deliberate before he throws in the towel and declares a mistrial.

She also called Menendez a good man who was "not at all corrupt" but said that all 12 jurors at one point had agreed that he was guilty of one criminal charge: making false statements by failing to disclose gifts on his Senate ethics forms. "They are friends. And if my friend, if I was rich and I had a lot of money and if I want to take my friend somewhere, why can't I?" I want to thank all of the jurors for their service, but I believe no juror should be coerced.

Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby was excused for a pre-approved vacation on November 9. "I would hope that at the end of the day after they finish tomorrow that those who continue to believe in my innocence will stand strong and that at the end of the day no juror will be coerced into a decision", Menendez said. Robert Menendez's bribery case said they began deliberations on Monday with nine of them - including herself - prepared to find him not guilty of the most serious charges. Last week a juror named Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby was dismissed because she had a previously scheduled vacation to the Bahamas coming up.

Jack Swagger announces signing with Bellator MMA
Swagger's catchphrase "We the People!" raised his profile, but earlier this year, he asked for his release from the company. Hager, who worked as Jack Swagger in WWE , was an All-American wrestler for Oklahoma University prior to signing with WWE .

"What I saw in the courtroom was that he was not guilty of all counts; so was Dr. Melgen", Arroyo-Maultsby said on Thursday following her dismissal.

Judge Walls never asked her to stay away from reporters and her words made headlines. The deliberations were supposed to start from scratch once the alternate juror was seated, but instead, the jury seemed to zoom back into the logjam described by Arroyo-Maultsby.

The defense suggested the jury was now tainted.

"If you're implying the genesis of a mistrial, you're off target, you're way off target", Walls said.

And then, three hours later, with an alternate in place of the excused juror, the jury announced it was deadlocked.
