Blago jury deadlocked, asks judge for guidance


Recommended Posts


CHICAGO — The jury in the corruption trial of Rod Blagojevich has asked the judge for guidance, saying that they are deadlocked on some of the 24 counts in the indictment against the former Illinois governor.

Jurors said in a communication to Judge James B. Zagel that they cannot reach agreement on "any given count."

Jurors are in their eleventh day of trying to reach a verdict. The judge said there is no evidence of rancor in the deliberations.
Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to 24 counts, including charges of trying to sell or trade an appointment to President Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat.

Blagojevich had waived his right to be present for questions from the jury, but Zagel requested that he be present for this hearing.

:unsure: Uh....how hard could this be?


Remember, they are Chicagoan's. They probably know or have relatives who owe Blago something for their job.
