Defense Rests in Corruption Trial of Ex-Va. Governor

Posted:
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Defense lawyers have finished presenting their case to a jury in the corruption trial of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen.
    
Lawyers for the couple wrapped up their case Wednesday. Closing arguments are likely to happen Thursday.
    
The McDonnells are charged in a 14-count indictment with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from the former CEO of a dietary supplements maker in exchange for promoting his company's products. They could face decades in prison if convicted.
    
Bob McDonnell testified in his own defense for more than four days. He acknowledged using bad judgment but firmly denied doing anything illegal.
    
Maureen McDonnell did not testify.
