On all 14 counts (9 counts of insider trading, 5 of conspiracy). Raj-Raj now faces up to 19.5 years in prison.

While we wait for the sentencing, wondering what took the jury so long (12 days) to come to a decision? They just didn't want camp to come to an end.

Jurors in the Raj Rajaratnam insider-trading trial ended their 11th day of deliberations yesterday without a verdict -- but with some picturesque mementos of their time together. After court ended, five jurors -- including a New York City school teacher, a nurse and a graphic designer for Apple Inc. -- sat in front of the fountain in Foley Square, near the Manhattan federal court where they've been deliberating for three weeks, and took turns snapping group photos.

With smiles aplenty, they looked like a group that really got along. While they may not have forged a consensus on the 14-count indictment, they seemed to have forged a friendship.
