The Travolta Extortion Jury Vote

11/5/2009 5:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John TravoltaThe John Travolta jury had the votes to convict both Pleasant Bridgewater and Tarino Lightbourne of extortion, according to a newspaper report out of the Bahamas.

The vote was 6 - 3 in favor of conviction, according to The Punch newspaper. In the Bahamas it only takes 6 votes to convict.

The judge declared a mistrial because of jury misconduct. No announcement has been made if there will be a retrial.

Michael Ossi -- Travolta's lawyer -- tells TMZ, "John was very disappointed because he wanted closure."

Ossi says Travolta will "fully cooperate" with prosecutors in the future and wants another trial, whether it's in the Bahamas or the U.S.

Ossi says there has been no discussion about a plea bargain.
