After the extortion case connected to John Travolta‘s son Jett’s death was ruled a mistrial, the actor is speaking out about the alleged juror misconduct that occurred in the case.
“We are disappointed to hear about the alleged juror misconduct since we know that the Bahamian government, the court, the other jurors and John Travolta as the victim want to have this matter adjudicated through the judicial system,” a rep for the actor tells Entertainment Tonight. “Mr. Travolta has and will continue to cooperate with the Bahamian authorities in the prosecution of the defendants for extortion.”
A date has not yet been set for the retrial.
Former Bahamas senator Pleasant Bridgewater and paramedic Tarino Lightbourne were charged with attempting to extort millions from John after his son died at the family’s vacation home.
