Blagojevich jury sighted on day 9 of deliberations

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The jury deliberating the fate of Rod Blagojevich was spotted Thursday entering a private elevator on its way to get lunch.

About half of the jurors were looking casual and wearing blue jeans, while others were slightly dressier. They mostly talked in small groups, while a couple individuals stood isolated. One whispered in another's ear.

It's day nine of the jury's deliberations and there's been no signal from them all week on the status of their deliberations. The jury has previously sent two notes to Judge James Zagel.

Last year, the jury on Blagojevich's first trial deliberated for 14 days and came back hung on all but one count.

Jurors in the retrial are weighing 20 counts against the ex-gov, charged with fraud, extortion and corruption.
