Jurors reached a verdict Tuesday in the trial of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, a former White House aide accused of lying and obstructing an investigation into the leak of a CIA operative's identity.
The verdict will be read in the courtroom where jurors heard 19 witnesses during the five-week trial. The verdict came on the 10th day of deliberations. The announcement was made by Randall Samborn, a spokesman for special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.
If found guilty on all five counts of perjury, obstruction and lying to the FBI, Libby faces up to 30 years in prison, although it is expected to be far less because of federal sentencing guidelines.
