Chicago: Rod Blagojevich`s fate is now in the
hands of the jury at the former Illinois governor`s corruption
trial.

The jury got the case today morning after the judge gave
them instructions on how their deliberations should be
conducted.
Blagojevich and his wife, Patti, were in court for the
proceedings. Before court began, an elderly woman told
Blagojevich she was praying for him. He put his hand over his
heart and thanked her.
Blagojevich and his brother, co-defendant Robert
Blagojevich, have pleaded not guilty to charges of scheming to
sell or trade an appointment to the US Senate seat Barack
Obama gave up when he was elected president and illegally
pressuring people for campaign donations.
