The federal court jury in Conrad Black has returned with its verdict, finding the media mogul guilty of at least four of the 13 counts he faced for allegedly defrauding shareholders of Hollinger International.
The jury deliberated for 11 days, at one point telling the judge that it could not reach a unanimous verdict on all the charges. The trial itself involved nearly 14 weeks of testimony that included details of the lavish lifestyle Black is said to have led.
Two other Hollinger executives were also on trial. The jury in Chicago is apparently reading the verdicts aloud.
