Blagojevich To Appeal Prison Sentence

Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich continues to take legal action in an effort to shorten his prison stay.

The ex-politician's lawyer filed a notice yesterday in Chicago federal court, saying he will appeal the 14-year sentence given to him earlier this month.

Blagojevich had sought to have some time taken off after five of his 18 criminal convictions were tossed out by a federal appellate court. However, a judge decided to stick with his original sentence.
