Sen. Menendez won't be retried on corruption charges

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Government prosecutors have decided not to retry New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez on corruption charges, after a judge threw out some of the counts last week.

Prosecutors filed the motion with the court on Wednesday.

The first trial of Menendez and Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen (MEHL'-genn) ended in a hung jury last November.

Menendez was charged with trading his political influence for gifts and campaign donations from Melgen.

Last week the judge threw out the bribery counts related to Melgen's campaign donations.
