Judge may cut ex-Illinois Gov. Blagojevich’s prison term

A federal judge will decide today whether to cut the 14-year prison sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who went to prison in 2012.
Blagojevich was convicted of 18 offenses, including attempting to exchange an appointment to President Barack Obama’s old U.S. Senate seat in exchange for campaign cash.
But he won a resentencing hearing after an appeals court struck down five of the convictions.
