NEW YORK, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - Jurors in a corruption trial involving one of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s former aides say they can’t reach a verdict, according to multiple reports.
Joe Percoco – who was once among the Governor’s top aides – is facing a 10-count indictment that includes bribery, extortion, and conspiracy.
COR Development's Steven Aiello and Joseph Gerardi are accused of paying Percoco thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for helping them secure projects and move along any issues with the state.
According to the New York Times, three jurors have asked to be dismissed, noting that the trial is in its seventh week.
One note from a juror in Federal District Court in Manhattan indicated that “the only thing we seem to agree on is that we cannot agree.”
Judge Valerie Caproni has told the jurors to continue deliberating.
