Rod Blagojevich Sentenced To 14 Years In Prison

Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has been sentenced to 14 years in prison.U.S. District Judge James Zagel handed down the sentence on Wednesday, shortly after Blagojevich made a plea for leniency, following his conviction on 18 corruption counts.Before the sentence and emotional Blagojevich told the judge: “I accept the people’s verdict, judge. They found me guilty and all I can say is I never wanted to hurt anyone … I would hope you can find some mercy.”
Before issuing his sentence, Zagel was pointed in blasting Blagojevich’s crimes.“His abuse of the office of governor is more damaging than the abuse of any other office in the United States except president,” Zagel said. Zagel ordered Blagojevich to report to prison on Feb. 16, 2012. He also ordered two years of supervised release and submit to drug testing.Where Blagojevich will serve his time is still to be determined, although his defense team asked that he serve his sentence in a prison camp.

I would settle for three years in a " pound me in the ass prison " for this piece of shit.
