Rod Blagojevich isn't going to get a third trial. A motion for a new trial was denied this morning after the defense claimed the jury forewoman in the second trial violated a court order. Connie Wilson allegedly shared information about her jury questionnaire to students at Metea Valley High School in Aurora. Blagojevich attorneys say that information belongs to the court and should have remained confidential.


Judge James Zagel reprimanded the Blagojevich team for suggesting Wilson broke the rules. In fact, he ordered them to write a letter of apology to Wilson, after calling request "harebrained" and that it was prepared without adequate thought. Zagel says how the defense could've come to that conclusion is beyond his imagination. Blagojevich was convicted of corruption and has been sentenced to 14 years in prison. His time will start on March 15th.
