Motion Denied In McDonnell Trial

(Richmond, VA) -- A federal judge is denying a motion to acquit former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen on fraud and corruption charges. Defense attorneys tried to convince Judge James Spencer that prosecutors failed to make the case that McDonnell used his office to help a wealthy Richmond businessman in exchange for gifts and loans. The prosecution rested yesterday and defense lawyers are scheduled to begin calling witnesses on Monday. The trial is now three weeks old and is expected to last two more weeks.
