Former Governor Rod Blagojevich is likely seeing a bit of light at the end of his tunnel. He's vowed to appeal his conviction and news that his predecessor, George Ryan, is getting another shot at an appeal, has probably put fire under Blagojevich's plan according to a law professor.

John Marshall Law School Professor Ann Lousin, who says Blagojevich will likely jump at the opportunity to prove the Honest Services Law didn't apply to him. It comes after the U.S. Supreme Court sent Ryan's case back to the court of appeals based on Ryan's claim that there were errors in jury instructions.
