Jury resumes deliberations in Renzi fraud case

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A federal jury has concluded its third day of deliberations in the case against former Arizona Congressman Rick Renzi.

The jury began deliberating in Tucson on Thursday. The panel will resume Tuesday morning.

Renzi is accused of trying to engineer a federal land swap for personal financial gain while in office and of looting clients' premiums from his family insurance business to help pay for his 2002 campaign then lying to regulators about it.

Renzi, a Republican, represented Arizona's sprawling 1st Congressional District from early 2003 until early 2009. He faces 32 felony counts, including conspiracy, extortion and money laundering.

Renzi's lawyer told jurors the prosecution's case was fabricated by FBI agents, while a prosecutor said he used his business and his elected office for corrupt purposes to benefit himself.
