The jury in the trial of Tom Noe, the Ohio Republican fundraiser and coin dealer who was the principal figure in the "Coingate" scandal, has come back with a verdict, the Columbus Dispatch reports. It found Noe guilty on 29 of the 40 counts he had been charged with, including the most serious one, which means he'll be facing at least a mandatory 10 years in prison. Noe, who will be sentenced Monday, was taken into custody on a separate federal charge after the verdict was announced.
