UPDATE: Jury Selected in First Day of McDonnell Trial

July 28, 2014 UPDATE: After a little more than 9 hours inside a federal courtroom, a jury of 8 men and 4 women have been selected to be a part of the jury in the McDonnell trial. The trial is expected to last at least five weeks. ORGINAL: Jury selection has begun in the corruption trial of former Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen. They arrived separately to the federal courthouse Monday morning. The former governor joked with reporters as he walked in, asking them if there was something going on today in court. Bob and Maureen McDonnell are charged in a 14-count indictment with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from the CEO of a dietary supplements company in exchange for helping promote his products. The trial is expected to last at least five weeks. McDonnell has apologized for what he described as bad judgment and repaid about $120,000 in gifts and loans, but has denied breaking any laws.
