Blago Defense Rests: Moment of Truth Nears

Soon comes the moment of truth.

The defense in the retrial of ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich rested Wednesday, setting the stage for the case to go to the jury, possibly on Thursday,  WGN-TV reported.

Blago did not take the witness stand in the first trial, which resulted in a conviction on only 1 of 24 counts.

This time he spent a week on the stand. Time will tell if that helps or hurts.

The verdict in the first case was an embarrassment for the Chicago U.S. Attorney’s Office and U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who has long been regarded as a rock star among U.S. Attorneys.
