Prosecutor: Cellini Should Serve 8 Years


Federal prosecutors say Springfield powerbroker Bill Cellini deserves an eight-year prison sentence for his role in the shakedown schemes of former Governor Rod Blagojevich.

 

But the Chicago Tribune reports that the sentencing memorandum filed by the U.S. Attorney’s office says the sentence could be reduced somewhat because of Cellini’s age and recent health problems.

 

But the report rejects a defense suggestion that Cellini be given probation, and says a prison term would serve as a deterrent to others.

 

Cellini is scheduled to be sentenced July 23rd.
