Day 8: No Verdict in Rod Blagojevich Corruption Trial Deliberations

Posted:

Jurors at former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's corruption retrial finished their eighth day of deliberations without reaching a verdict.

They'll start their ninth day on Thursday morning.

As on previous days, jurors offered no clues Wednesday about where they were in the process.

Jurors sometimes send notes to the judge that can indicate they've hit a roadblock. But this jury has sent only two and neither was very telling.

Jurors at Blagojevich's first trial deliberated for 14 days before coming back deadlocked on 23 of 24 charges.

The retrial jurors are considering 20 counts. Blagojevich has denied all the charges, including that he tried to sell or trade President Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat.
