Martha Stewart and her former stockbroker are both found guilty on several counts-
Prosecutors say it was a case about lying and jurors agreed finding Stewart guilty of lying to the government and obstructing justice.
Stewart now faces up to 20 years in prison- though under federal guidelines she will likely serve much less.
Sharyn Alfonsi is outside the New York City courthouse tonight with more on the verdicts and reaction.

(( GUILTY....Martha Stewart heard the word four times today ...and now faces years in prison. Stewart was convicted of obstructing justice and lying to the government about a perfectly timed stock sale. Peter Bacanovic her former stock broker was convicted on all but one count against him, that of making a false statement. DAVID KELLY/ACTING U.S. ATTORNEY DAVID KELLY
Send a message will not tolerate dishonesty in this system. The jury of eight women and four men deliberated three days...and sent back several requests for re-reads of testimony.
The convictions carry up to 20 years in prison, but Stewart will most certainly get much less than that under federal sentencing guidelines. The charges centered on why Stewart dumped about $228,000 worth of ImClone Systems stock just a day before it was announced that the FDA had rejected ImClone's application for approval of a cancer drug....an announcement sent ImClone's stock plummeting. Stewart and Bacanovic claimed they had a standing agreement to sell when the price fell below $60. But the government said that was a phony cover story. Testimony from Douglas Faneuil...Bacanovic's assistant...and Stewart's own executive assistant...clearly played a part in helping the government prove their case... that Stewart sold because she was tipped by her broker that ImClone CEO Sam Waksal was dumping his own shares. CHAPPELL HARTRIDGE/JUROR If we had enough evidence.........it really didn't matter what Martha had to say. Sentencing has been set for June 17th. Trading in her stock was halted after the verdict. ))

It is still in the initial test phases, but a new vaccine for Alzheimer's disease is showing promise in primates.
Two monkeys were vaccinated with beta-amyloid (AM'-eh-loyd). That's a sticky protein substance that builds up in the brain and is thought to play a major role in destroying nerve cells and problems associated with the disease. The other monkeys got a placebo.
In the animals that were vaccinated, there was a significant increase in plaque-clearing antibodies circulating in the bloodstream.
