William Cellini trial jury selected, Opening statements Thursday, October 6, 2011, Teachers’ Retirement System extortion plot

The jury has been selected in the William Cellini trial and opening statements are expected Thursday, October 6, 2011.

From the Chicago Tribune October 5, 2011.

“A jury has been selected for the trial of Illinois powerbroker William Cellini.

Cellini, 76, is accused of conspiring to shake down the Oscar-winning producer of “Million Dollar Baby” for a campaign contribution to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

Prosecutors say Cellini wielded influence over the Teachers’ Retirement System and plotted with top Blagojevich advisers and a corrupt TRS board member to try to extort a $1.5 million campaign contribution from producer Thomas Rosenberg.

The plot was hatched in 2004 after it was discovered that Rosenberg hadn’t contributed to Blagojevich’s campaign despite his investment firm’s extensive business with TRS.

The case is the last trial stemming from a federal investigation of the ousted governor, who was convicted of corruption earlier this year and is awaiting sentencing.”

“The case is the last trial stemming from a federal investigation of the ousted governor”

Perhaps not. Patrick Fitzgerald, Eric Holder  and Barack Obama should be next.
