Federal Judge Sets Blagojevich Sentencing Date

Impeached Illinois Gov.

Rod Blagojevich plans to make a statement to the court at his newly scheduled sentencing hearing in December, his attorney said Monday.

The attorney’s comments came as a federal judge set a new sentencing date of Dec. 6 for Blagojevich.

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will be sentenced on corruption charges Dec. 6.
In September, a federal judge indefinitely delayed an Oct. 6 sentencing date for Blagojevich apparently because it would have conflicted with the start of a related trial that month.
