Inside the Rod Blagojevich investigation and related cases

Blagojevich jury announced

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Judge James Zagel has announced the 12 jurors and six alternates who will decide the case against former Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his brother, Robert.

Eleven females and seven males were announced.

Assuming the first 12 are jurors and the remaining are alternates -- alternates are generally not told they are not full-fledged jury members until deliberations -- that would mean the jury is comprised of eight women and four men.

The judge was not explicit in stating whether the first 12 are the jurors. But he did appear to seat the jurors in sequential order.

Included on the jury is a man who said he was born in a Japanese internment camp in California, a human resources manager in his 30s, a public school math teacher and an investment accountant.
