We caught up with Joe Percoco this afternoon as he departed from his federal corruption trial on a small bit of good news for him. Today the jury, after several partial days of deliberation, advised the court that it is deadlocked and several jurors asked to be released from further service. Judge Valerie Caproni directed the jury to continue deliberating, although she released them early for the day and cancelled deliberations on Wednesday as a significant snowstorm is expected.
Percoco and his attorneys exited the federal courthouse at 40 Centre Street, with attorney Barry Bohrer speaking briefly with the press before the group headed across Foley Square to the subway. Percoco listened as his attorney spoke, but offered no comments of own.
