The Rezko verdict: Guilty on four of first five counts; guilty on 16 of 24 counts involving mail/wire fraud, money laundering, and corrupt solicitation charges
Scroll for updates…
But you know, it’s just a “distraction.” And this discussion is definitely not good for Barack and Michelle Obama’s kids.
ABC: “The jury in the federal corruption trial of Antonin Rezko has reached a verdict, according to the court. The verdict will be delivered in court at 3:45 p.m. central time at the federal courthouse in Chicago. Rezko, a real estate developer who became known in Illinois politics as a behind-the-scenes operator and fixer, is accused of bribery and extortion.”
Sun-Times: “Guilty on four of first five counts.”
- Guilty on 12 of 15 counts mail/wire fraud
- Not Guilty on 1 count attempted extortion
- Guilty on 2 of 6 counts corrupt solicitation
- Guilty on 2 counts money laundering
Chicago Trib has a good multimedia section with audio exhibits from the trial, an Obama-Rezko timeline, and more background.
It ain’t over. Las Vegas still wants Rezko over gambling debts.
And he still faces trial in a $10 million business-loan fraud case in Chicago federal court.blog comments powered by Disqus
