NEW YORK – Jurors who complained of a deadlock are sent back to work at the bribery trial of the former head of the nation’s largest municipal prison guard union.
The Manhattan federal court jury said in a note Tuesday that he was stuck in his discussion of the charges against the 57-year-old Norman Seabrook.
Judge Andrew Carter directed the jurors to keep an open mind and continue to deliberate.
Seabrook is on trial for the past month on the charges that he, as a $60,000 bribe in return for the investment of $20 million of the union money with a hedge fund.
Seabrook’s lawyer says that he is a reasonable investment for his association and came in straight.
Seabrook led the union for more than two decades.
