Cellini Could Take The Stand

Posted by wlpo on October 21, 2011

CHICAGO (AP) – Attorneys have raised the possibility that an Illinois powerbroker accused of conspiring to shake down the Oscar-winning producer of “Million Dollar Baby” could take the stand in his own defense.

Bill Cellini’s attorney told Judge James Zagel the millionaire businessman will make a final decision by the end of today. Cellini has denied conspiring to shake down the Oscar-winning producer of “Million Dollar Baby” for a $1.5 million campaign contribution to former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

The prosecution rested its case Thursday.
