Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich may have dodged a bullet yesterday after a Chicago jury found him guilty on only count of lying to federal agents. The jury was hung on the other 23 charges against him. After the verdict was read, Blagojevich told reporters, "this jury just showed you ... that on every count except for one, on every charge except for one, they could not prove that I did anything wrong."
But the 18-month political soap opera may still be far from over. The prosecution is reportedly planning on retrying Blagojevich on the 23 counts. And Blagojevich says he’ll appeal the single conviction. We talk with Rob Wildeboer, criminal justice reporter for Chicago Public Radio, about the implications of the jury's verdict.
