Jurors in Blago Trial Say They Agree On 2 Counts

Thursday, 12 August 2010 01:04 PM EDT

Jurors in the corruption trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (blah-GOY'-uh-vich) say they have reached agreement on just two of 24 counts against him. The judge says he'll tell them to go back and deliberate some more.

The jurors said Thursday they have not discussed 11 counts of wire fraud. They indicated they have discussed the remaining 11 counts and appear to be deadlocked on them.

The jury had sent a note to Judge James B. Zagel on Wednesday saying they were stuck, and Zagel had asked for clarification. Zagel said he wants the jury to go back and discuss the wire fraud counts.

Blagojevich and his brother have pleaded not guilty to charges including trying to sell or trade an appointment to President Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat.
