The criminal trial of Delaware State Auditor Kathy McGuiness is now in the hands of the jury, who heard closing argument on Thursday.

.

Just into the newsroom and breaking, McGuiness has been found guilty of the three misdemeanor charges, but found not guilty on felony theft and intimidation.

.

Janice Lorrah, McGuiness’ Republican opponent in the upcoming election, issued a statement shortly after the ruling:

.

“Politics as usual hurts hard working Delaware taxpayers. Delaware needs a change and I’m offering voters an alternative as an outsider with a fresh perspective who will restore transparency and accountability and bring confidence back to our government.”

.
She continues by saying “Confidence in our government is at an all-time low,” Ms. Lorrah said. “It is going to take someone with a track record of standing up when government goes off the rails to be a true
watchdog for the people.

.

The judgment came down just after noon today. We will have reaction as this is a developing story.
