A federal judge has ruled that a hearing for Roger Stone's retrial will be in partial view of the public.


Judge Amy Berman Jackson made the ruling in a hearing on Tuesday afternoon after Stone's attorneys asserted that one of the jurors had a bias against President Donald Trump.

Jackson said that she would make her decision at subsequent hearing, which she said would be available only as audio to the public.

Stone was sentenced this month to 40 months in prison after he was convicted on charges of lying to Congress and witness tampering. Jackson agreed to postpone the sentence until she made a ruling on a possible retrial.

It was not immediately clear when Stone, a longtime adviser to the president, would be taken into custody to begin serving his sentence.
