Blago Convicted Of Trying To Sell Obama's Senate Seat

A Chicago jury has found former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich guilty of 17 of the 20 charges in his corruption trial.

Earlier Monday the jury announced that it had reached a decision in 18 of the 20 charges, but remained deadlocked on two.

In August Blagojevich was convicted on one count of making false statements to the FBI, just one of the 24 charges initially brought against him. He was re-tried after the jury deadlocked on the rest of the charges.

The charges were related to accusations that Blagojevich had tried to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat in 2008, after it was vacated by Obama when he was elected President. Blagojevich pleaded not guilty to all counts of wire fraud, racketeering, bribery, and attempted extortion.
