Justice Dept intends to re-try Menendez in corruption case

Justice Dept. says it will re-try Sen. Bob Menendez

Mr. Menendez is up for re-election in 2018, and while he has not officially announced that is running, he has given no indication that he intends to retire and following the trial previous year he locked up every key endorsement in New Jersey.

Federal prosecutors are seeking to retry U.S. Sen.

"The United States files this notice of intent to retry the defendants and requests that the Court set the case for retrial at the earliest possible date", it said.

Menendez and his longtime friend, a Florida eye doctor named Salomon Melgen, were indicted in 2015 on bribery and corruption charges.

The U.S. Justice Department intends to retry Senator Robert Menendez on bribery charges after a jury failed to reach a verdict last November and jurors said after the case that a majority believed he wasn't guilty.

Yamana Gold (NYSE:AUY) Receives Media Impact Rating of 0.21
The shares price has positioned 4.21% over the past quarter while it has directed 7.81% throughout past six months. Yamana Gold (NYSE: AUY ) (TSE:YRI) last announced its quarterly earnings results on Thursday, October 26th.

Menendez took trips on the doctor's private jet, vacations in Paris and the Dominican Republic and $750,000 in campaign contributions, the government said in the court proceedings.

"The first trial ended in a mistrial with a deadlocked jury". Melgen was under federal scrutiny over a medical billing dispute, and Menendez arranged meetings with government officials in order to help his pal.

"We can not reach a unanimous decision on any of the charges", they told U.S. District Judge William Walls, who presided over the case. Walls declared a mistrial after individually interviewing members of the jury when it remained deadlocked.

Melgen was convicted a year ago in a separate Medicare fraud case in Florida. Prosecutors are asking for a 30-year sentence.

Menendez is up for reelection in 2018.
