Cellini Drops Fight To Stay Out Of Prison Pending Appeal, Will Start Serving Sentence Jan. 4


Bill Cellini says he’s done fighting. 

 

In court papers, the Springfield businessman and longtime political kingmaker is dropping his fight to remain free while he appeals his conviction on corruption charges, and will report to federal prison as scheduled on January 4th

 

And Cellini is considering dropping all appeals entirely, because of the toll the legal battle is taking on his family and his own failing health. 

 

He was convicted earlier this year of taking part in a conspiracy with Blagojevich administration insiders to shake down a movie producer for campaign contributions in exchange for a chance to do business with the state.
