Prosecution Says Blago Got Fair Shake

Posted by wlpo on August 23, 2011

CHICAGO (AP) – Prosecutors say Rod Blagojevich received a fair trial and his convictions should stand.

They made that argument in a 133-page filing Tuesday morning in U.S. District Court in Chicago. The filing is a point-by-point retort to a 158-page defense motion last month that alleges a litany of errors at Blagojevich’s retrial and asks for another trial.

In the prosecutors’ filing, they say there was “no bias, manipulation or unfairness” by the government attorneys or the
judge.

Blagojevich is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 6.
