Bridgegate Trial: Jury Resumes Deliberations

Defendant Bridget Kelly, right, arrives at the federal courthouse in Newark for the final day of the Bridgegate trial.

Now in week 7, the Bridgegate trial is finally in deliberations. The 12-member jury broke from its first full day of deliberation Tuesday without reaching a verdict, and seemingly with some confusion. Over the course of the day the jury sent handwritten notes to judge, questioning how to approach details of motive and conspiracy.

As we wait for verdicts for former Christie staffer Bridget Kelly and former Port Authority appointee Bill Baroni, WNYC's Andrea Bernstein and Matt Katz discuss why the jury has questions, and why those questions led the defense to ask for a mistrial.
