Court upholds guilty verdict in ex-Virginia governor corruption case
A federal appeals court upheld a guilty verdict on Friday in the corruption case against former Virginia governor Robert McDonnell, according to court documents.
The 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals let stand a jury verdict that found the former governor guilty of 11 counts of corruption. The court also found that the jury’s not guilty verdict of two counts of making a false statement must stand, the court said.
