Sen. Ted Stevens guilty in corruption case

Alaska senator proclaims his innocence, promises appeal of verdict


Oct. 27: Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, was convicted of corruption charges Monday in a trial that threatens to end the career of the longest-serving GOP member in the Senate.

The jury found Mr. Stevens guilty of failing to report tens of thousands of dollars in gifts and services from friends. These included an estimated $250,000 in renovations to his home in Alaska underwritten by the owner of an oil-services company and one of the state’s leading power brokers.
