Blagojevich trial: Prosecution connects Blago, Levine

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

We're now seeing much evidence of what we've seen in Tony Rezko's trial. But this is key for jurors. Included in today's exhibits were two letters that clearly showed Blagojevich appointed the notorious Stuart Levine to two state boards that had much power over state investments.

That seems to clash with what Sam Adam Jr. told jurors in openings, when he tried to minimize Blagojevich's role in putting Levine on those boards.

Lon Monk testified that both Tony Rezko and Chris Kelly wanted Levine on those boards.
Levine has pleaded guilty to substantial wrongdoing and without a plea deal, could have faced up to life in prison, instead of five years.
