RICHMOND, Va. (WHSV) — The defense has finished its direct examination of former governor Bob McDonnell.

The next step is for him to be questioned by prosecutors, which will begin at 9:45 a.m. on Monday.

Friday's proceedings focused largely on finances, disclosure of gifts and loans.

At end of day, when asked if he committed any crimes as governor of Virginia, McDonnell responded no.

He said that he misjudged Williams and believed him to be a true friend.

McDonnell also testified that he doesn't blame his wife for his being in court and he holds himself accountable for getting his life out of balance. He reiterated the fact that he never exchanged anything for gifts or loans

The former governor also told the jury that he spent 38 years in public service and wouldn't trade it for a golf match or a golf bag.
