Blago jurors end 9th day of deliberations

August 9, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Blagojevich and his brother, Robert, have pleaded not guilty to corruption charges, including allegations of trying to sell or trade a U.S. Senate seat.

Jurors have been deliberating for nine days as of Monday, when they went home at 5 p.m. They will be back Tuesday at 9 a.m. and it is not known when they will have a verdict.

While jurors were sequestered in the jury room, a Blagojevich lookalike from California entertained the media at the Dirksen Federal Building by holding a press conference. The actor is in Chicago on vacation and looking for publicity.

Sources say the lookalike's hair is real.
