Today, March 15, 2013 is the one year anniversary of Rod Blagojevich’s 14 year prison sentence.
From Politico March 15, 2013.
“A year in prison, Rod Blagojevich in good spirits”
“It’s been a year since Rod Blagojevich entered a federal prison in Colorado to start serving his 14-year sentence for corruption — and his attorney says while the former Illinois governor misses his family, he remains in “good spirits” and is “hopeful” the conviction will be overturned.
Blagojevich’s appellate lawyer Len Goodman — who, along with attorney Lauren Kaeseberg, is working on the appeal — told POLITICO that Blagojevich’s family visits him “as often as they can make the trip” to Englewood, a low-security facility in Littleton, Colo.”
“And next up for the former governor, Goodman said, is his case on appeal in the 7th Circuit. Blagojevich’s opening brief is due April 25, Goodman noted.
“He is hopeful that his appeal will be successful and that his conviction will be overturned,” Goodman wrote.”
“Goodman, meanwhile, said he is currently busy working his way through thousands of pages of trial transcript as he works on Blagojevich’s appeal.”
Still wondering what Obama and Blagojevich were discussing shortly before Blagojevich was arrested in 2008.
