According to his attorney, former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has chosen not to appear in person at his resentencing next month in Chicago and will instead make his first appearance in a public forum in four years via video from a Colorado prison.
The 59-year-old Democrat had originally planned to return to his hometown, but reluctantly agreed with officials that the logistics of the 1,000 mile journey would cause complications.
Blagojevich has granted no interviews in prison, so the resentencing will be the first chance to see how his appearance has changed behind bars.
