Jurors in the Rod Blagojevich trial were able to reach a verdict on only one count : lying to an FBI agent. A mistrial will be declared on the remaining 23 counts.
Prosecutors immediately announced their intention to pursue the case, and a hearing is set for next week to consider a date for a new trial.
Pictured are Rod and Patti Blagojevich as the verdict was announced in court. Patti’s brother, Dick Mel has his arm around her shoulder.
