Deliberations, day 8: Jury continues talks as speculation mounts

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The jury is holed up in Judge James Zagel's chambers for an eighth day as speculation grows about what the 11 women and one man are discussing as they debate Rod Blagojevich's fate.

The relatively quiet jury -- read more about last year's jurors here -- has sent two notes to Zagel thus far. Neither have offered much of a clue into deliberations. The more substantive note asked for clarification on the definition of wire fraud.

Zagel declined to give a definition, telling the jurors to read his instructions again and be more specific if they still had a question. They haven't sent a note since.

They're deliberating 20 counts against the ex-gov.
