Rod Blagojevich wants more time to file an appeal. His attorney Leonard Goodman says they need an extra nine days to get the motion in, pushing the date back to at least July 3rd. Goodman says he and his colleagues have sifted through more than ten-thousand pages of transcripts and dozens of recorded conversations preparing for a new trial.
Blagojevich is serving a 14 year sentence for corruption but maintains his innocence, and says he’ll be vindicated during the appeal. He is being held in a federal prison in Colorado.
