Rod Blagojevich Trial Day 23: Defense may ask for delay

| No Comments

The prosecution is zipping along on Day 23 of the criminal corruption trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, reports Chicago Sun-Times federal courts reporter Natasha Korecki, partly because some witnesses with a lot of baggage have not been called by the prosecutors and the defense questioning has not been extensive. Defense lawyers were expecting to start putting on their case in August; the prosecution may rest this week. Blagojevich lawyers are asking for a delay.

Defense lawyers said they were misled; read today's Sun-Times story here.
