“Blagojevich lawyers urge judge to bar feds from putting Rezko on the stand”

“Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s lawyers are asking the judge in his corruption case to bar testimony from convicted fixer Tony Rezko.

Blagojevich’s lawyers also asked Judge James Zagel on Tuesday to order prosecutors not to call anyone to the stand who has been convicted of a felony and remains unsentenced — including Stuart Levine, the campaign contributor who was the star witness at Rezko’s trial.

The lawyers said any witness convicted of a felony and still awaiting sentence would feel too much pressure to say whatever the government wanted to hear.”
