The Latest on jury deliberations in the bribery trial of U.S. Sen.
Menendez's attorney, Abbe Lowell, called for Walls to declare a mistrial, pointing out the jury had already deliberated for several days before changing jurors. The excused juror subsequently spoke to the press and said she believes the panel will end in a hung jury.
One female juror was excused last week because of a prearranged vacation.

"I'm concerned about some of the comments she made ... the environment in the jury room".
"They are friends", Arroyo-Maultsby said. "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?" The prosecutors at that time would choose whether to retry the case.
In his rebuttal to jurors, federal prosecutor Peter Koski echoed the judge's instructions that gifts given "both out of friendship and a corrupt intent" can be considered bribes. "Ladies and gentlemen, that is not the law". "Then it presents a 'me vs. the government" scenario".
"Under the circumstances and given all that's occurred, it seems to me we should take them at their word, bring them back in, thank them for their service and declare a mistrial", Lowell said. They asked for guidance. Bob McDonnell. That ruling played a significant role in how the jury was instructed in the Menendez trial.
