    Verdict Reached On 18 Counts In Blagojevich Trial

    CHICAGO (CBS) A verdict has been reached on all but two counts in the re-trial of deposed Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

    The jury sent a note Monday morning revealing it has reached a verdict on 18 counts in the trial, and that jurors are hung on two other counts. It has not been revealed whether the verdict is guilty or not guilty, nor which specific 18 counts the jury has reached a verdict on.

    U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel, who had been hearing a mortgage fraud case while jurors deliberated, asked prosecutors and the defense if they accepted the verdict. Both teams attorneys said they did.

    Zagel said he would inform the jurors that they should fill out their official verdict form for the 18 counts on which they reached agreement and the official verdict would be read later Monday.

    And the verdict will be....

    Guilty on all 18 counts! That's my guess.

    ONE not guilty. That's a whole lot of prison time.. Do most Chicago politicians end up in jail?? There seem to be a few...

    I was wrong, he's guilty on 11 so far, but the link crashed, waiting for more:

    The link said 11, the count is 17 of 21.

    If there is one thing I hate, it is corrupt politicians. Hang him high.

    I'm curious as to if everyone else that was involved is going to go down, too. Or, is Blago going to take the fall for them?

    The jury in Rod Blagojevich's corruption case finds the former Illinois governor guilty on 17 of the 20 counts against him.
    This from CNN.

    Did they take him in to custody?? I heard he will lose on appeal. Can't imagine they would allow him the chance to run. I feel sorry for the good people in IL outside of Chicago. Bunch of crooks running the state.

    Count 1 alone (wire fraud) is a potential 20 years and a $250,000 fine.

    He's facing some serious prison time and substantial punitive fines.

    I hope the judge gives him the max on every guilty count.
