Blago seeks new trial

Wednesday, 13 November 2013 08:34 Published in Local News

CHICAGO (AP) - Prosecutors have filed a response to Rod Blagojevich's corruption conviction appeal.

The 169-page government filing submitted late Tuesday urges the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reject the imprisoned former governor's request for a new trial.

Defense lawyers filed the appeal on the Illinois Democrat's behalf in July. It asks the Chicago-based appellate court to toss his convictions or at least reduce his 14-year prison sentence.

In 2011, jurors convicted the 56-year-old former governor of engaging in wide-ranging corruption. That included seeking to profit from his power to appoint someone to the Senate seat that Barack Obama vacated when he became president.

With prosecutors' response in, oral arguments on the appeal could be scheduled soon. A ruling on the appeal by the three-judge panel could happen within several months.

   

 

The Institute of International Education says the University of Illinois at Champaign is the second-most popular destination for international students, behind only the University of Southern California.

Hundreds of thousands of Chinese students have helped push the number of foreign students studying in America to all-time highs. Similarly, more U.S. students than ever are studying abroad.

The findings come in a report being released Monday that was conducted by the nonprofit group working with the State Department.  Purdue University in Indiana was ranked third.

 

On this Veterans Day, the American Red Cross is urging people to commemorate a veteran or hero with a purchase from their Holiday Giving Catalog.  

Military Comfort Kits, Connect a Military Family and Caregiver Training are just a few of the items that can bought which will benefit veterans.  

The Connect a Military Family, for instance, helps deliver an emergency message to a service member to make sure they can connect with their loved ones in times of family crisis.

The Comfort Kits include personal care items for wounded warriors recovering in hospitals.  And the Caregiver Training provides family and friends the skills and support they need to care for injured heroes returning home.
