Associated Press Quotes Partner Julian Solotorovsky on Rod Blagojevich's Sentencing
November 9, 2011
In the article, "Feds Dig into Blagojevich Pensions," the Associated Press reported that prosecutors are trying to assess Rod Blagojevich's finances prior to his December 6 sentencing. The article quoted partner Julian Solotorovsky, a former assistant U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, who said Mr. Blagojevich's net worth will be an issue and prosecutors will argue for as much of a fine as possible. The former Illinois governor was convicted in June of 17 corruption charges, including attempted extortion for trying to sell President Barack Obama's vacated U.S. Senate seat.
