The jury in the case of Senator Charles Walker reached a decision after deliberating 20 hours, according to the Atlanta Jrl. Constitution here. We previously discussed this case here, a federal case against a man who is described by reporter James Salzer as "once among the most powerful African-Americans in [Georgia] state politics." The jury convicted Walker of 127 counts. For more information, see the Atlanta Journal article here.
