Blagojevich appeal moves to Circuit Court
November 15, 2013 (WLS) -- Ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich's appeal moves forward after it was decided Friday that oral arguments will be made to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals December 13.
Blagojevich wants his corruption conviction thrown out or his 14-year sentence shortened.
His attorneys have argued he didn't commit crimes, that he merely took part in typical horse-trading that politicians do all they time.
Prosecutors say he broke the law and got a fair trial.
