A mistrial has been declared in the federal corruption trial of former Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and his wife Linda.
The jury foreman sent a note to Judge Joan Azrack, saying he could no longer carry out his duties as a juror, and asked to be excused.
Soon after, Azrack declared a mistrial.
A relieved Ed Mangano says he’s not thinking about a possible retrial...yet.
“Words can’t describe the emotional hurt and pain and suffering that a trial puts on one and one’s family and one’s loved ones,” Ed Mangano said.
