Appeal Process Starts For Blagojevich

Posted by wlpo on December 21, 2011

CHICAGO (AP) – Attorneys for Rod Blagojevich have formally begun the process of appealing the former Illinois governor’s conviction and prison sentence.

They did so in a court filing late Tuesday, notifying the U.S. District Court in Chicago that they intended to appeal to a higher court.

Blagojevich has been ordered to report to prison on March 15. Attorneys had said they planned to appeal.

The process of filing a full appeal is likely to drag on for several weeks or even months.
