"I have no idea what the jury deliberated about." Bob McDonnell's lawyer [View all]

(Juror)Carmody said she voted for McDonnell and thought he was a great governor, but added: "the facts spoke for themselves".

Juror Robin Trujillo, who moved to the Richmond area about a year and a half ago and wasn't familiar with the McDonnells before the trial, said it "wasn't just one light bulb" that swayed the jury toward a guilty verdict. But after deciding on guilt on the first conspiracy charge "everything kind of fit together like a puzzle," she said.


Bob McDonnell's attorney, Henry Asbill, said he was shocked, surprised and disappointed. He complained that prosecutors sought to criminalize routine political behavior, and said, "I have no idea what the jury deliberated about."

Maureen McDonnell's attorney, William Burck, declined comment.
