Jury deadlocked in Espada corruption trial
The jury says it's deadlocked in the corruption case against former Bronx state Sen. Pedro Espada Jr.
Federal Judge Frederick Block is issuing an Allen charge, or a formal statement urging the jury to listen to each other and try to reach a consensus. The judge already had to meet with the jury last week after one juror was accused of refusing to deliberate.
Espada and his son are accused of embezzling at least $500,000 from their non-profit Soundview Healthcare Network. Both have maintained their innocence.
