Former State Sen. Pedro Espada Jr. may be retried in federal court.

Prosecutors told a federal judge Tuesday that they will retry Espada on the theft and conspiracy counts against him and his son that left jurors deadlocked at the end of his trial last month.

Jurors convicted Espada on four counts of theft but failed to reach a verdict on four other conspiracy and theft charges.

Espada is accused of stealing more than $500,000 from the Soundview Health Network, a Bronx clinic he founded.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on related tax charges in federal court in Manhattan next week.

The judge said Espada is forbidden from directly participating in the operation of the health clinic.
