Judge Zagel said he was satisfied that Blagojevich accepted responsibility for his actions instead of blaming his aides.

That means less prison-time eligibility

He will also get mitigation credit for All Kids.

"I don't doubt his devotion to his children, bit this is not ... exceptional in my own experience," Zagel said. "I see case after case where good fathers are bad citizens. There is no question that the innocent children of felons suffer. This is tragic. But, as he admits, the fault of this lies with the defendant alone. Now it is too late."
