Jury to Resume Deliberations in NJ Corruption Trial

Jurors are scheduled to resume deliberations Thursday in the first trial stemming from New Jersey's largest corruption sting.

     Jurors began deliberating Tuesday morning and didn't report to court Wednesday due to the blizzard.
    
Suspended Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini faces six counts of extortion and bribery.
    
The 74-year-old is accused of taking campaign contributions from a government informant posing as a corrupt developer, allegedly in return for helping him with building approvals.
    
Beldini was among 44 people arrested last summer in a dual public corruption and money laundering sting that netted nearly two dozen public officials as well as prominent members of Orthodox Jewish communities in New Jersey and New York.
