Blago Guilty on only one count of Lying to FBI

VERDICT IN: ROD BLAGOJEVICH GUILTY ON ONE COUNT -- LYING TO THE FBI
BY

Sarah Ostman


Reporting with Natasha Korecki, Dave McKinney and Chris Fusco

The jury has found former Gov. Rod Blagojevich guilty on just one of the 24 counts -- count 24, making false statement to the FBI.

That charge carries a maximum five-year jail term and $250,000 fine.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
~~UPDATE~~

A federal jury today convicted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich of only one count against him: lying to the FBI. Jurors said they were deadlocked on the other 23 counts against the former governor, and all four counts against his brother Robert.

Blagojevich, who faces up to 5 years in prison, pursed his lips and shook his head slightly.

Patti rested her head on the chair in front of her and shook her head no several times.
Blagojevich looked at her with an annoyed look on his face.

As jurors filed out, Patti collapsed into her seat and the former governor's attorney, Sam Adam Jr. moved next to Blagojevich and put his arm around him, rubbing his back.

Declaring a mistrial on the 23 counts, U.S. District Judge James Zagel gave the prosecution until Aug. 26 to decide whether to retry Blagojevich and his brother.

But prosecutors said they didn't need that long to decide. "It is absolutely our intent to retry this," said Assistant U.S. Atty. Reid Schar. "We could be here tomorrow."

Nice jury pool. Form everything I have seen, this should have been a slam dunk.
