STATEMENT OF MANHATTAN U.S. ATTORNEY PREET BHARARA ON HUNG JURY IN U.S. v. LARRY SEABROOK

December 12 2011 – “While the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict in the trial of Councilman Seabrook,
we fully intend to retry the case and prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the Councilman criminally exploited his official position in order to enrich his friends, his family, and himself.

Public corruption erodes the public’s confidence in its elected officials, and it degrades our democracy. I want to thank both the jury for their service and the prosecutors from my office for their hard work in trying this case.”
