A federal judge on Thursday declared a mistrial in the high-profile bribery case of New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez, after jurors twice reported they were hopelessly deadlocked. 

“There’s no alternative to declaring a mistrial,” U.S. District Court Judge William Walls said Thursday afternoon. 

The decision came after jurors said they could not reach a verdict. It was the second time this week the 12-member panel told Walls they could not come to a unanimous decision. 

"I think we have a for-real hung jury," Menendez attorney Abbe Lowell said before the judge issued his decision.
