Rod R. Blagojevich, the former governor of Illinois who is accused of trying to benefit personally from his selection of a replacement for the United States senate seat once held by President Obama, announced a verdict on Monday afternoon.
As they began a 10th day of deliberations on Monday morning, they told a federal court judge here that they had reached agreement on 18 of 20 criminal counts against Mr. Blagojevich, but were deadlocked on two others. Just after 2PM central they found the former governor guilty on 17 counts of various charges of wire fraud, attempted extortion, bribery, extortion conspiracy and bribery conspiracy.
Sentencing will be at a later date.
