Poll: Blago's 14-Year Prison Sentence, is it Fair?
What do you think of Blago's sentence?
Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich was sentenced to 14 years in prison for his 18 convictions that include trying to sell President Barack Obama's vacated senate seat, bribery and attempted extortion, according to the Huffington Post.
Blago apologized at his sentencing hearing and told the judge he'd make "terrible mistakes," the article stated.
Federal rules say that defendants must complete 85 percent of their sentence, which would mean Blago will have to serve 12 years, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune. He is not required to report to federal prison until Feb. 16, 2012.
