Blago’s Brother Unhappy With Prison Sentence

Posted by wlpo on December 9, 2011

CHICAGO (AP) – Rod Blagojevich’s brother says the 14-year prison sentence given to the convicted former governor is “grossly unfair.”

Robert Blagojevich spoke to his brother this week for the first time since July. Both brothers were once indicted in the federal investigation. Jurors last year deadlocked on charges against Robert Blagojevich.

Robert Blagojevich says he broke down crying when he heard the sentence for Rod. He says his brother is dealing with the thought of prison “remarkably well” and understands that “he’s going away for a long time.” He says his brother is also hopeful about a possible appeal.
