FROM THE SUN-TIMES BLAGO BLOG: Jurors told Judge James Zagel in a note that they have been unable to reach a unanimous decision on some or all counts and asked for guidance on how to proceed.
Zagel read the note aloud in court with a nervous-looking Rod Blagojevich looking on.
"We have gone beyond reasonable attempts" to reach a unanimous decision and "now ask for guidance," the note said.
Zagel said he was unclear on whether the jury had been able to reach a unanimous decision on some counts, and wanted to respond in writing asking them for clarification.
