William Jefferson found guilty

From NBC's Pete Williams

Former Congressman William Jefferson (D-LA) has been found guilty at his bribery trial of 11 of the 16 counts against him -- but not guilty on the other five. He was found NOT GUILTY of the most spectacular charge: planning to bribe an African official with money that was later found in his freezer.

*** UPDATE *** But the jury still found him guilty of conspiring to pay that bribe, so he stands convicted of one of the charges involving the freezer case.
