The Latest on verdicts in a trial where prosecutors alleged a Texas lawyer and six others submitted fake oil spill claims (all times local):

3:45 p.m.

Jurors have convicted two people of making up fake clients to sue BP following the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, but the jury acquitted a Texas lawyer and four others.

Sheila Wilbanks, spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Gregory Davis in southern Mississippi, said verdicts were delivered Thursday.

She says San Antonio lawyer Mikal Watts, his brother David Watts and Watts law firm employee Wynter Lee were acquitted of all charges. Also acquitted were Eloy Guerra and Thi Hoang "Abbie" Nguyen.

Wilbanks says jurors convicted Gregory Warren and Thi Houng "Kristy" Le on 66 charges of mail fraud, wire fraud and identity theft.

Prosecutors said all seven created a list of bogus plaintiffs, using names and Social Security numbers without permission. Defendants said prosecutors never proved they acted with criminal intent.
