Jurors in the corruption trial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich asked the judge for guidance on how to proceed if they can’t reach a unanimous verdict, the judge said during a hearing.
U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel in Chicago read the panel’s note in a full courtroom today as Blagojevich and his brother and co-defendant Robert listened, along with their attorneys and prosecutors.
“In a situation where jurors cannot agree on a unanimous decision,” Zagel read, “what should the next logical step be?” The note is the third since jurors started deliberating on July 28.
