Supreme Court to Revisit Former Virginia Governor Case

The US supreme court agreed on Friday to hear former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell's appeal against corruption convictions. McDonnell, once a high-flying Republican politician, and his wife, Maureen, were convicted in 2014 of taking $177,000 in gifts and loans from a businessman, Jonnie Williams, in a trial that lifted the lid on the couple's financial and marital troubles. McDonnell was sentenced to two years in prison, but the supreme court last year agreed that he would not have to report there until his appeals process was complete. The court is expected to hear the case in the coming months and rule by the end of June.
