Blagojevich Found Guilty On Nearly All Counts

June 27, 2011
As he left his home earlier this afternoon, Blagojevich told reporters that he was nervous. "My hands are shaking, my knees are weak, I can barely stand on my own two feet," Blagojevich said. "It's in God's hands now." In the original trial last year, the jury was hung on all but one of 24 counts against Blagojevich and found him guilty on the single charge of lying to the FBI. He has not yet been sentenced on the charge and faces up to five years in prison on that count alone. The retrial began April 20. Following complaints from jurors in the first trial that the charges were confusing, the government significantly pared down their case, dropping complicated racketeering charges. The defense also changed their strategy this time around, allowing Blagojevich to take the stand in his own defense. Before the first trial began, Blagojevich had promised to testify on his own behalf, but later decided against it.
