A federal jury found Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens guilty on all seven counts in his corruption trial on Monday. Stevens, 84, was convicted of intentionally failing to report more than $250,000 in gifts and home renovations between 2000 and 2006. Each count carries a maximum of five years in prison. The conviction is a win for the DOJ's Public Integrity Section, which had made some serious gaffes during the trial. But many criminal defense lawyers predict that Stevens will get no more than six months in prison.
