Feds Want Blago to Serve 15 to 20 Years

Fed prosecutors in Chicago want ex-Ill. Gov. Rod Blagojevich to go away to prison for a long long time.

The Associated Press reports that prosecutors said in court papers filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Chicago that Blago deserves a sentence of 15 to 20 years, suggesting he misused his power in office “from the very moment he became governor.”

AP reported that Blago’s attorneys argued for leniency in court papers, saying he was “an intrinsically good, kind, and decent man.”

Sentencing is set for next Tuesday.

Blagojevich was convicted in his first trial on one of 24 counts.  The jury deadlocked on the remaining counts. In the second trial, he was convicted on 17 or 20 public corruption counts.
