Cellini To Be Sentenced Today

It’s the day of reckoning for Bill Cellini.


The former state powerbroker could be facing a prison term when he is sentenced today for his role in a shakedown scheme involving campaign contributions to former Governor Rod Blagojevich.


Prosecutors say Cellini needs a meaningful sentence, including time behind bars, to send a strong signal about this kind of corruption.


But defense lawyers say Cellini’s record of public service, and his failing health, should earn him leniency at his sentencing hearing.
