Federal sentencing postponed from former Gov. Blagojevich

As detailed in this local article, "Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s sentencing next month on his sweeping corruption charges has been postponed, according to a court order Monday." Here is more:

No new date has been set. The Oct. 6 date has always been tentative, and the postponement is not surprising largely because Blagojevich’s co-defendant, William Cellini, is scheduled to go on trial next Monday in the same courtroom.

U.S. District Judge James Zagel, who will preside over both Blagojevich’s sentencing and Cellini’s trial, said in a written order on Monday that the former governor’s sentencing has been postponed “until a further order of the court.”
