Onto day 10.

Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich will have to wait until at least next week to hear from the jury debating his fate on 20 counts charging him with corruption, fraud and extortion.

The jury ended its ninth day at its usual 4 p.m. Thursday and will be back to deliberating Monday. Their regular schedule is Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to the clerk of court.

Last year, Blagojevich's jury took 14 days to deliberate before letting Judge James Zagel know they were hopelessly deadlocked. It turned out they were hung on 23 of 24 counts against the ex-gov.
