Blago guilty on just 1 count; feds vow retrial

CHICAGO (AP) — A federal jury has found ex-Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (blah-GOY’-uh-vich) guilty of one count of lying to federal agents, and the judge says he intends to declare a mistrial on the remaining counts.

Prosecutors said Tuesday immediately after the jury reached its verdict that they intend to retry the case against Blagojevich as soon as possible.
