After 2 1/2 days of jury deliberation, former state senator John Ford has been convicted of taking $55,000 in bribes.

The jury deadlocked on the more serious charge of extortion, and prosecutor David Kustoff says that the decision to retry Ford on that charge has not yet been made.

Ford gets to walk on three counts of witness intimidation, having been found not guilty of all three counts by the jury.

Kustoff’s formal statement can be found here.

Sentencing of Ford was set for Tuesday, July 31, at 9 a.m.
