McDonnell: GUILTY on 11 counts-Corruption

Jury reaches verdict in federal corruption case of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell

[The jury has convicted former Governor Bob McDonnell (R-VA) and his wife Maureen on 11 counts in their corruption trial.]

After 17 and a half hours of deliberations, the jurors in the McDonnell trial have reached a verdict.

The verdict is expected to be read in court shortly. The decision will bring to a close a trial that seemed to grip the nation since it began in July with the shocking revelation by defense attorneys that the McDonnells’ marriage was shattered, and that would be a core element of their attempt to beat the charges.

Maureen McDonnell, wife of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, also found guilty of obstruction of justice in corruption case.
