Just after 11:00 a.m. the federal court clerk sent a message that there is a verdict in the John Wiley Price corruption trial. The panel had returned to the Earle Cabell Federal Building in downtown Dallas, for an eighth day of deliberations.

Price was acquitted on seven counts — including mail fraud and bribery — and a mistrial was declared on the remaining counts.
