After six days of deliberations, jurors in the bribery trial of a former top aide to Governor Andrew Cuomo have yet to deliver a verdict.

The jury spent Friday reviewing some portions of testimony in the trial of Joseph Percoco. They're due to continue on Monday.

Prosecutors allege Percoco accepted over $300,000 in bribes from businessmen who sought state aid. Percoco's lawyers deny this happened.

Percoco was a longtime confidante of Governor Cuomo. The governor himself has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
