Jury Selection Begins for Rod Blagojevich Retrial
Judge James Zagel is expected to start questioning potential jurors today for the retrial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.
More than a hundred potential jurors showed up to federal court Wednesday to fill out a 38-page questionnaire meant to weed out people who are biased either for or against Blagojevich.
Call it "Blagojevich Trial, the Sequel." The retrial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich opens Wednesday in federal court, as he again faces charges related to allegedly trying to sell President Obama’s former US Senate seat for political favors and money.
Jury selection in Rod Blagojevich's retrial has started today with a group of 150 potential jurors summoned to the courthouse.
No in-court hearing is scheduled for the day but the potential jurors are now filling out a lengthy questionnaire, according to the U.S. District Court Clerk's office.
