A federal jury finds Tony Rezko guilty on 16 of 24 counts.

Eight jurors spoke to the media after the verdict was in and said it was with great care and caution that they considered the testimony. One juror said the panel considered Levine's testimony with caution.
"We set aside Stuart Levine's testimony because he played with us in the courtroom."
Ultimately, they found his testimony consistent, because it was backed up by other evidence, they said.
Rezko voluntarily turned himself over and is in custody, his lawyer, Joseph Duffy said it was Rezko's decision to do that. "Mr. Rezko wants to start serving his sentence immediately," Duffy said.
