Blagojevich Verdict: Jury Reaches Verdict on Two Counts
Looks like the case against disgraced former Chicago governor Rod Blagojevich wasn’t so air tight. After deliberating for 12 days, the jury has reached a verdict on only two of the 24 counts. Blagojevich stands accused of trying to sell President Obama’s Senate seat, an accusation that includes 11 counts of wire fraud upon which the jury has yet to deliberate. The jurors notified the judge that they were deadlocked on some of the counts, despite having “gone beyond reasonable attempts to reach agreement.” But U.S. District Judge James Zagel has instructed the jury to continue deliberations.
