To the shock and surprise of many Former Gov. Bob McDonnell, R-Va., and his wife, Maureen, have been found guilty on numerous counts of conspiracy, corruption and bribery.
It was back in January when The McDonnells were charged with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from Jonnie Williams, the CEO of Star Scientific Inc., in exchange for promoting Williams’ anti-inflammatory vitamin supplement called Anatabloc.
The jury reached the verdict after three days of deliberations.
The Governor and his wife could get up to 30 years, with sentencing possibly not taking place until early next year.
