Democratic Senator Bob Menendez might be going to jail.
In the latest update on the federal corruption trial of Sen. Menendez, D-N.J., an alternate juror has replaced a juror who was excused because of her vacation plans. The jury will resume its deliberations Monday. Judge William Wells told the jury, “You are starting fresh.”
But the juror who was excused, juror number 8, Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby, has signaled that the jury may be ready to convict Menendez of committing a felony by making false statements regarding his Senate financial disclosure form.

“Then when I got home and I started thinking about it, and then I started praying on it. I felt God talking to me, saying ‘Evelyn, if you have doubts, remember the word reasonable doubt,’” Arroyo-Maultsby said.
In count 18, Menendez is charged with violating Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1001(a)(1) and (c)(1), which carries a maximum of five years’ prison time. (For more from the author of “Could Democratic Senator Bob Menendez Be Going to Jail?” please click HERE)
