No jury questions on 4th day of Blago deliberations
August 2, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Jurors in the corruption trial of former governor Rod Blagojevich wrapped up their fourth day of deliberations at the Dirksen Federal Building Monday.
They had no questions for Judge James Zagel. Deliberations, which began last Wednesday, are scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. They took the weekend off.
Blagojevich is not in court during deliberations. He's reportedly running to burn off extra energy as jurors decide his fate.
One of Blagojevich's attorneys, Sam Adam Jr., told the Chicago Tribune Adam is 'sort of a wreck.' Adam said he's so nervous he hasn't been eating or sleeping.
Blagojevich has pleaded not guilty to corruption charges, including scheming to sell or trade the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by President Barack Obama and pressuring people for campaign donations in exchange for state businesses.
