DALLAS (AP) - Jurors are to begin deliberations in in the corruption trial of longtime Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price.

Those deliberations are to begin Wednesday morning after the Dallas County jury listened to closing arguments that capped eight weeks of testimony in the federal trial.

Price is charged with mail fraud, conspiracy to defraud the Internal Revenue Service and filing a fraudulent income tax return. The longtime political leader and civic activist would spend decades in prison if convicted of all 11 counts against him. Three other co-defendants have already been convicted on charges related to the Price corruption probe.
