Blago II, Coming Soon!

Blago

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.

About

Courtartist is me, Art Lien. I've been sketching the courts since 1976, and for most of that time the U.S. Supreme Court has been my regular beat. I've been working almost exclusively for NBC News since 1980. Courtroom sketching is a form of visual journalism or reportage drawing that is slowly dying out. Where once upon a time news organization each had their own artist covering a story, today a "pool" artist often sketches for all. It is a demanding and stressful discipline where the drawing is often done directly and under tight deadline.
