Two top Christie aides were found guilty on all charges, including wire fraud.

Bridget Kelly, Christie’s former deputy chief of staff, and Bill Baroni, a former Port Authority executive, both face up to 20 years behind bars after being convicted of the top charge in a nine-count indictment handed up in connection with the politically motivated lane closings at the nation’s busiest bridge in September 2013.


They were also found guilty of other conspiracy, fraud and civil-rights deprivation charges.

The jury hearing the case deliberated for five days after hearing more than six weeks of testimony.

The pair will be sentenced Feb. 21.
