Springfield businessman Bill Cellini will face prison time for his part in the shakedown of a Hollywood producer for a campaign contribution to former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.  Cellini's sentence of a year and a day was handed down yesterday in a federal court room in Chicago.  The 77-year-old Cellini was sentenced in November on extortion and bribery charges.  

In addition to prison Cellini is ordered to pay more than 75-thousand-dollars in fines.
