Rezko Verdict In - Guilty on 16 of 24 Counts

Tony Rezko verdict is in.

Guilty on of 16 of 24 counts.

The jury convicted Rezko of 12 counts of wire and mail fraud, two counts of money laundering and two counts of aiding and abetting bribery. He was acquitted of attempted extortion.

Extended coverage, including links to trial documents, from the Chicago Tribune.

UPDATE: Rezko's old associate Barack Obama attempts to throw him under the bus along with an ever-growing number of friends and family, stating that he was saddended by the verdict and "This isn't the Tony Rezko I knew." Rezko narrowly avoids te toss by immediately surrendering to the safety of the US Marshall, Rezko stating through his attorney that he wants to begin serving his sentence immediately.
