Jurors in the public corruption trial of Milton McGregor and eight others ended in a partial verdict Thursday, leaving some defendants to go free and others likely to stand trial again on some charges.
Lobbyist Bob Geddie and Sen. Quinton Ross were found not guilty on all charges. The remaining defendants were acquitted of some charges but not all.
Jurors seemed to have struggled most with the conspiracy and bribery charges, most of which were left undecided in the partial verdict.
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson declared a mistrial on all the unreturned counts. Prosecutors will decide whether to bring the case to trial again. A new indictment from a grand jury will not be necessary.
