CHICAGO (CBS) — A verdict has been reached on all but two counts in the re-trial of deposed Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

  • The jury sent a note Monday morning revealing it has reached a verdict on 18 counts in the trial, and that jurors are hung on two other counts. It has not been revealed whether the verdict is guilty or not guilty, nor which specific 18 counts the jury has reached a verdict on.

    U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel asked prosecutors and the defense if they accepted the verdict. Both teams attorneys said they did.

    Zagel said he would inform the jurors that they should fill out their official verdict form for the 18 counts on which they reached agreement and the official verdict would be read later Monday.

    The judge estimated that the official verdict will be read sometime between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.
