Jury ends Day 1 of deliberations in Bridge-Gate trial
Jurors in the trial of two former Christie allies charged with using traffic jams for political revenge have gone home for the day.
They began brief deliberations late Monday afternoon after attorneys wrapped up closing arguments. Jurors deliberated for about an hour before leaving for the day.
They're scheduled to resume at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Former Christie staffer Bridget Kelly and former Port Authority appointee Bill Baroni are charged with scheming to punish Democratic Mayor Mark Sokolich for not endorsing Republican Gov. Chris Christie's 2013 re-election campaign.
They face counts including conspiracy, wire fraud and misusing the property of the Port Authority.
David Wildstein, another former Port Authority official, pleaded guilty in the case as part of a plea bargin.
Gov. Christie wasn't charged.
