Cellini Reports To Federal Prison In Indiana


Longtime Springfield businessman and political dealmaker Bill Cellini is now a federal prison inmate. 

 

Cellini reported to the federal penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana, this (Tuesday) afternoon to begin serving a sentence of one year and one day on federal corruption charges.  He was convicted in 2011 for a political shakedown scheme involving allies of convicted former Governor Rod Blagojevich. 

 

The facility is seen as one that has appropriate medical facilities for Cellini, who has suffered heart problems and other health issues in recent months. 

 

That lockup in Indiana is the same facility that currently houses Cellini’s fellow Republican, former Governor George Ryan.  But Ryan is scheduled to be released to a halfway house next week.
