Blagojevich Blog: Jury Wraps Day 3; Sends First Note to Judge

Jurors in the Rod Blagojevich corruption retrial sent their first note to the judge on their third day of deliberations. They were going through transcripts from a phone call from Nov. 14, 2008 between the former governor and his brother, Robert, when they noticed that some of them had nine pages and some had five for the same phone call.

It was determined that they were only supposed to have five pages for that specific call. Court security went in the deliberation room to remove the extra pages from the binders that had nine pages.

Jurors began deliberating the 20 counts against the former Illinois governor on Friday. According to Judge James Zagel, jurors chose a foreperson and a schedule for deliberations: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday.
