A judge on Thursday declared a mistrial in the bribery trial for Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.).

U.S. District Judge William Walls in Newark, New Jersey, declared the mistrial after a jury remained deadlocked after several days of deliberation. 

“We cannot reach a unanimous decision,” jurors wrote Thursday in a note to Walls, according to The Washington Post. “Nor are we willing to move away from our strong convictions.”

Prosecutors can attempt to retry the case. 

Menendez was indicted earlier this year on 14 charges, including public corruption. He was accused of accepting gifts and donations from Dr. Salomon Melgen, a Florida ophthalmologist, in exchange for helping the doctor challenge Medicare reimbursement charges.
