Blagojevich's Former Top Fundraiser Gets 37 Months
Ex- Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's former chief fundraiser Christopher Kelly was sentenced this morning to 37 months in federal prison.
His plea agreement did not call for cooperation against Blagojevich.
Kelly is not accused of any involvement in the burgeoning political corruption case that has resulted in Rezko's conviction for influence-peddling and charges against Blagojevich that include scheming to sell or trade the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by Barack Obama's election as president....His plea agreement did not call for cooperation on his part in the Blagojevich investigation -- something that might have gotten him a break.
Another nice job by Chicago criminal defense attorney (and TalkLeft pal) Mike Monico.
