Blago sentencing could be delayed
September 8, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- The sentencing date for former governor Rod Blagojevich could be delayed because the judge will be busy with another political corruption trial.
Judge James Zagel is scheduled to sentence Blagojevich on October 6. But The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Zagel is also scheduled to preside over the trial of William Cellini beginning October 3.
The Cellini trial involves pay-to-play politics linked to Blagojevich.
In June, a jury convicted the former governor on corruption charges.
