KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) — Former “Law and Order” actress Diane Neal is seeking a new role as representative of a sprawling congressional district in upstate New York, saying her long recuperation from a devastating car accident made her rethink her direction in life.

Currently, New York law has a "double jeopardy" clause which protects people from being tried for the same crimes more than once. In other words, if someone is pardoned for a federal crime — like conspiracy, money laundering, or obstruction of justice — they cannot be tried for the same crime on a state level. While it's unclear if Schneiderman's proposal will withstand legislative scrutiny, "given the situation staring at everyone with respect to Mueller's investigation and the real possibility of pardons, this is not a totally theoretical discussion," said one former federal prosecutor.
