Blagojevich Sentencing Recommendation


The video cannot be displayed.

Federal prosecutors asked a federal judge on Wednesday to sentence former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich to 15 to 20 years in prison for his corruption conviction. His lawyers say that's too harsh, and even the former prosecutor in former Gov. George Ryan's case thinks that's too long. Elizabeth Brackett reports on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm.

Judge James Zagel is scheduled to sentence Blagojevich next week.
