A man accused of mugging former Senator Carol Moseley Braun has been found guilty. A jury deliberated less than 4 hours yesterday before finding 39-year old Joseph Dixon guilty of attempted robbery and battery.

The attack happened last April outside of Braun's Hyde Park home. Two passers-by came to Braun's aid when she began to scream. Braun fell and broke her arm.

Dixon faces between six and 30 years in prison.
