Democratic Senator Bob Menendez has caught a lucky break and will not be facing a retrial over his briber and corruption charges.
From Daily Mail: Government prosecutors have decided not to retry New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez on corruption charges, after a judge threw out some of the counts last week.
Prosecutors filed the motion with the court on Wednesday.
The first trial of Menendez and Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen ended in a hung jury last November.
Menendez was charged with trading his political influence for gifts and campaign donations from Melgen, who has already been convicted of Medicare fraud in a separate trial. The gifts included vacations and flights on the doctor’s private plane.
