Jury Finds Blagojevich Guilty of Lying to Agents
A federal judge says he intends to declare a mistrial on the remaining counts in the political corruption trial of ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
The jury found Blagojevich guilty of one count of lying to federal agents in a verdict read around 4:30 Tuesday afternoon. There were 23 other counts against Blagojevich and four against his brother.
US attorneys say the government plans to retry the Blagojevich case "as quickly as possible.''
WILL-AM and FM have live coverage of the verdict until 6:00 tonight.
