Stevens Vows to Appeal Convictions

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) _ A defiant Sen. Ted Stevens has returned
to his home state of Alaska, telling supporters he's innocent of
the charges brought against him and vowing he will be vindicated.
Stevens appeared Wednesday evening at a hangar at the Anchorage
airport, which bears his name.
It was the Republican lawmaker's first stop in Alaska since a
federal court jury in Washington convicted him Monday of seven
counts of lying on Senate disclosure forms to conceal hundreds of
thousands of dollars in gifts from a wealthy businessman.
He says he believed his disclosure forms were complete and
accurate.
