The defense said that it was filing a motion for a change of venue for the retrial. It was not immediately clear where they wanted to take the case.

Ed Mangano is accused of taking bribes and kickbacks from restaurateur Harendra Singh in exchange for political favors. His wife allegedly lied to the FBI about her no-show job that paid her hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Their first trial ended in a hung jury.
