Blagojevich sentencing set for December 6, 2011, District Judge James Zagel, Sentence may exceed former Governor George Ryan’s

“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich

From the Chicago Tribune November 7, 2011.

“A federal judge today scheduled former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s sentencing for Dec. 6.

The disgraced former government was convicted last summer on sweeping corruption charges, including allegations he tried to sell the U.S. Senate seat left open by Barack Obama’s election as president..

U.S. District Judge James Zagel had originally scheduled Blagojevich’s sentencing for Oct. 6, but it was indefinitely postponed in part because the judge was then presiding over the trial of Blagojevich co-defendant William Cellini, a Springfield power broker who was convicted last week.

Prosecutors have not said yet what sentence they will seek for Blagojevich, but it is widely expected that they will ask for more than the 6½-year prison term being served by his predecessor, former Gov. George Ryan, for his 2006 corruption conviction.

U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeman Randall Samborn said that the sentencing could go into a second day if necessary.”,0,2249696.story
