From the Chicago Tribune October 25, 2011.
“Courtroom adversaries this morning are poised to deliver closing arguments at the last trial related to the years of federal scrutiny of ousted Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
The prosecution will be first in addressing jurors at the shakedown trial of Springfield power broker and businessman William Cellini.”
“After the defense finishes its closing, prosecutors get the last word to the jury in a rebuttal.
Before jurors withdraw to deliberate, the judge will instruct them on how to assess the three weeks of evidence.
Each side gets three hours for its closing.”
Tony Rezko, who was convicted in June 2008 and not yet sentenced, was not called as a witness in the Cellini or Blagojevich trials. Rezko was at the center of Operation Board Games corruption and was a long time associate of Barack Obama.
