From the Chicago Tribune September 27, 2011.
“Delays in determining prison terms for some high-profile Illinois criminals”
“With former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s sentencing postponed indefinitely, here’s a look at how long it took to sentence other high-profile public corruption figures after their convictions by federal juries. It’s been 92 days since Blagojevich was found guilty June 27.”
“George Ryan: 142 days. The former governor was found guilty in 2006 of more than a dozen felony charges, including racketeering, tax and mail fraud and lying to the FBI. He is in prison.
Antoin “Tony” Rezko: 3+ years: A top fundraiser for Blagojevich, Rezko was convicted in 2008 of extorting millions of dollars from firms seeking state business. His sentencing was indefinitely postponed earlier this year.”
Why has the sentencing of Tony Rezko been delayed over 3 years without his being called as a witness?
