No verdict after 4 days in Mass. corruption trial
BOSTON (AP) -- The jury in the corruption trial of former Massachusetts Treasurer Tim Cahill has completed its fourth day of deliberations without reaching a verdict.
The Suffolk Superior Court jury left the courthouse at about 4 p.m. Friday. Jurors are scheduled to resume deliberations Monday.
Cahill is accused of violating state ethics laws by scheming to air $1.5 million in taxpayer-funded lottery ads to try to promote his faltering 2010 independent gubernatorial campaign.
Cahill testified that he ran the ads to defend the lottery against Republican attack ads.
Cahill and his former campaign manager, Scott Campbell, face up to five years in prison if convicted.
