The article reports that jurors told a U.S. judge that they were having trouble reaching a verdict in the case of a banker charged in connection with the Philadelphia pay-to-play investigation. However, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Baylson sent jurors back to resume deliberations in the case of Denis Carlson, a former banker with Janney Montgomery Scott, before sending them home at the end of the day. Jurors are trying to determine if Carlson lied to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents probing the awarding of bond underwriting work by city officials.
