MOSCOW  — A judge on Monday declared Mikhail Khodorkovsky guilty of theft and money laundering charges, a verdict that will likely keep the oil tycoon who was once Russia's richest man behind bars for several more years.

It was clear from the opening pages of his verdict that Judge Viktor Danilkin has found Khodorkovsky and his business partner Platon Lebedev guilty, said Khodorkovsky's lawyer Karinna Moskalenko. Reading the full verdict and announcing the sentence is expected to take several days.
