An appeals court vacated five convictions and threw out the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D), WLS-TV reports. The rest of Blagojevich’s convictions were affirmed by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.
“If Blagojevich chooses to appeal, he must tell the court within the next two weeks. But with five counts thrown out, the former governor will at some point be re-sentenced, and his attorneys will argue that his 14 years be dramatically reduced.”Save to Favorites
