(Chicago, IL) — Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is planning to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court after being denied a rehearing of his corruption convictions. His attorney Leonard Goodman was disappointed with the decision handed down yesterday in a federal appeals court in Chicago but the fight will go on.
The court said a three-judge panel voted no to the rehearing which is the same panel that previously tossed out five of Blagojevich’s 18 convictions. Besides appealing to the Supreme Court, the ex-governor can seek a new sentence from the trial judge.
