Cellini Lawyers May Seek Delay In Sentencing


Defense lawyers for Springfield powerbroker Bill Cellini will ask for a delay in his July 23rd sentencing, as Cellini continues to recover from a recent heart attack and blood clot. 

 

The defense is asking for Cellini to be sentenced to probation for his role in a shakedown scheme aimed at trading state business for campaign donations to then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich. 

 

But prosecutors say Cellini needs to do time in prison to deter others from similar crimes. They have recommended an eight-year sentence, but acknowledge that it may be appropriate to lower that because of Cellini's age and health.
