NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — 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. “Take as much time as you need,” he said. “This is not reality TV. This is real life.”

Deliberations began last week, but the jury restarted on Monday after a juror was excused for a previously scheduled vacation and was replaced by an alternate.

3. This judge is making a mistake

forcing the jurors to keep deliberating. They are obviously deadlocked and no good can come from a the panel deciding one way or the other just to get themselves out of a cloistered jury room.
