Former New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is guilty on all counts in his corruption retrial.

Prosecutors accused him of using his position as speaker to do favors in exchange for four-million-dollars in bribes. The 74-year-old Silver was convicted a few years ago, but the verdict was thrown out after the Supreme Court changed the definition of corruption. He's expected to be sentenced next month.
