A Mixed Bag Of Verdicts

The Mike Carona jury has spoken. He was found not guilty on counts one through five which consisted of conspiracy and mail fraud charges. He was convicted of the sixth count of witness tampering. There's really not much to celebrate here except the fact that Mike Carona is now a convicted felon and his political career is over. How the jury could not convict on the other charges is baffling. Once again I will never try to think I know what will happen in a given trial. It's just way to unpredictable. It remains to be seen if Carona will even receive any jail time.
